Italy: 28 Aprile – Domani di sarà [FILCA CISL]



Le proposte dei sindacati ed il video del flashmob del 30 aprile in Piazza Montecitorio in occasione del Safe Day, la giornata mondiale della salute e sicurezza sul lavoro                                  

Anche quest’anno FenealUil, Filca-Cisl, Fillea-Cgil organizzano una iniziativa in occasione del SafeDay, la giornata mondiale della salute e sicurezza sui luoghi di lavoro. Il 30 aprile, dalle ore 10:00, saranno in piazza Montecitorio per ricordare tutte le vittime sul lavoro ed illustrare un pacchetto di proposte concrete per contrastare questo dramma nazionale, inviate nei giorni scorsi anche alle massime autorità dello Stato ed ai rappresentanti del Governo. Nel corso dell’iniziativa davanti alla Camera dei Deputati, con la collaborazione di alcuni artisti di strada sarà allestita una installazione dal grande impatto emotivo.

“Purtroppo il nostro settore – ricordano i sindacati – resta uno dei più colpiti dagli infortuni sul lavoro e dal fenomeno delle malattie professionali. La nostra attenzione ed il nostro impegno è continuo, ma la giornata della sicurezza resta un appuntamento importantissimo per coinvolgere tutti, occorre agire – dicono – per contrastare ed eliminare le cause, aumentando i controlli e le ispezioni, contrastando il lavoro nero ed il dumping contrattuale, investendo in prevenzione e formazione. Le proposte non mancano e saremo in piazza anche per rilanciarle e per ricordare che, dopo la Francia, nell’Unione Europea, l’Italia è il paese in cui di lavoro si muore di più, secondo i dati Eurostat confermati dall’Inail nel 2018.

Brazil: April 28 – protection week against asbestos

April 22-28: The Brazilian Association of Exposed to Asbestos (ABREA) organized a series of events under the banner of “Protection Week against Asbestos.” The event was supported by the Inter-Union Health and Safety Council in Osasco and the Region where the event took place. The objective of the event was to evaluate next steps of the organization after the ban on asbestos in Brazil. An international delegation of Ban Asbestos Network, with delegates from Indonesia, India, Japan and United Kingdom attended to the meeting.

The week included an ecumenical event, honouring the victims of asbestos and the launch of the book “Eternidade”, by the journalist Marina Moura, which tells the story of the creation of ABREA and other regional organizations fighting against asbestsos.

The social movement made a very positive assessment of the ban on asbestos in the country, but, recognizes there is still a lot of work to do including fair compensation for those exposed to asbestos, environmental decontamination and the end of asbestos export. Brazil is the main asbestos exporter to India and the second exporter to Indonesia.
