Asia: ANROEV call for Action – International Workers Memorial Day, 28 April

Greetings from ANROEV secretariat!

International Workers Memorial Day (IWMD), 28 April 2019 is knocking at the door.

Every year IWMD observed on April 28 as a day of commemoration and action for workers those who killed, disabled, injured, intoxicated by chemical exposure or made unwell by lack of safety and health at work. It is a day to commemorate for those who died at work, fight for the rights of injured workers and to acknowledge the grievous suffering experienced by families and communities.

This day is also an opportunity for us to highlight the OSH awareness , demands and promotion of preventative safety culture.

This year the proposed theme of ANROEV for IWMD is: ʺRaising Voice to Ratify ILO Convention no. 155 (Occupational Safety and Health Convention, 1981)ʺ.

It will be appreciated if you could share us your organisation’s plan of action on 28 April.

Furthermore, we also request you to send us activities picture or produced materials (if any) after the event.

With best regards,
