The Supreme Council of Health (SCH) will observe World Day for Safety and Health at Work tomorrow by organising a one-day medical camp for workers.
The International Labour Organisation observes World Day for Safety and Health at Work on April 28 every year to promote the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally.
This year’s theme is “The Prevention of Occupational Diseases”, which continue to be the leading cause of work-related deaths.
It is an awareness-raising campaign intended to focus international attention on emerging trends in the field of occupational safety and health and on the magnitude of work-related injuries, diseases and fatalities worldwide. On this occasion, the world’s trade union movement observes its International Commemoration Day for Dead and Injured to honour the memory of victims of occupational accidents and diseases.
“During the medical camp, we will conduct free check-up for the participants,” said Dr Alanoud al-Thani, SCH Non-Communicable Diseases and Health Promotion manager.Last updated:
