Today, 28 April, the World Day for Safety and Health at Work is celebrated in many countries around the world. It was established by the ILO (International Labour Organization). The main mission of the holiday is to prevent accidents and occupational diseases at work. It was started by American and Canadian workers who in 1989 gathered to commemorate their colleagues who died at work.
The holiday, of course, refers not only to the mining industry. It concerns all workers. Compliance with safety standards and requirements is the most important condition of the working process. Its violations can have serious consequences for the company and the health of employees.
Friends, we congratulate everyone who stands at the machine today, manages machinery, extracts minerals, builds houses and industrial facilities, works in numerous factories and plants. Safe work for you, without injuries and diseases. Be careful, don’t break safety standards, and remember – your family is waiting for you at home!
