Tenova celebrates the World Day for Safety and Health at Work (ILO and UN) & the Steel Safety Day (Worldsteel Association).
On April 28 we celebrate two important days that highlight the importance of safety and health in the workplace: World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Steel Safety Day.
World Day for Safety and Health at Work was founded in 2003 by the International Labour Organization (ILO) to promote the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally. During the ILO Conference last June, “a safe and healthy working environment” was included in the ILO’s framework of fundamental principles and rights at work. Today, this decision is being celebrated with a number of ILO experts and constituents to discuss the implications this has for the world of work, as well as how to practically implement this right.
Steel Safety Day was founded in 2014 by the World Steel Association to coincide with World Safety Day. Its goals are to raise awareness about the key causes of safety incidents and to create a safer working environment across the steel industry.
At Tenova, where human lives take precedence over everything else, we are proud to celebrate these two World Days. Safety is paramount, forming one of our core pillars. We commit to ensure the mental and physical wellbeing of our employees and stakeholders alike by promoting a culture of safety among our people and designing robust safeguards directly into our technologies. We adopt the most stringent international safety rules, regardless of where our facilities are located, or which local laws govern them. We also perform regular safety training sessions, always monitor and analyze warning flags and near misses, provide all our employees with Basic Safety Rules, as well as run regular audits to review existing safety standards.
We believe that if we are safe today, we’ll be safer tomorrow.
