‼️Declarația Confederației Naționale a Sindicatelor din Moldova cu ocazia Zilei internaționale a securității și sănătății în muncă – 28 aprilie

?Anul acesta suntem chemați de Confederația Internațională a Sindicatelor de a susține promovarea dreptului la securitate și sănătate în muncă ca drept fundamental în cadrul Conferinței anuale a Organizației Internaționale a Muncii.

✅Toate acestea sunt promovate, fiind fundamentate la nivel mondial pe o statistică foarte tragică: aproximativ 2,9 milioane de lucrători mor în fiecare an din cauza accidentelor și bolilor profesionale și cel puțin 402 milioane de persoane, anual, sunt vătămate la locul de muncă.

?În Republica Moldova, statistica, la fel, nu este îmbucurătoare: pe parcursul anului 2021, la Inspectoratul de Stat al Muncii au fost comunicate 627 de evenimente de accidentare a lucrătorilor în câmpul muncii, în urma cărora au avut de suferit 664 de persoane, dintre care – 78 au decedat.

Finland: Kansainvälinen työntekijöiden muistopäivä – työsuojelu on oikeus

Tänään kansainvälisenä työntekijöiden muistopäivänä – kun muistamme työssä kuolleita tai loukkaantuneita – Eurooppalainen ay-liike vetoaa Euroopan unioniin sekä jäsenvaltioihin vaatimalla, ettei töissä satu enää yhtään kuolemaa.

Maailmanlaajuisesti työhön kuolee 3 miljoonaa työntekijää joka vuosi. EU:n jäsenmaissa (27:ssä) kirjattiin vuonna 2018 yli 3 300 kuolemaan johtanutta onnettomuutta ja 3,1 miljoonaa ei-kuolemaan johtanutta onnettomuutta. Yli 200 000 työntekijää kuolee vuosittain työperäisiin sairauksiin. Syöpä on suurin työperäisten kuolemantapausten syy, mikä on 52 prosenttia kaikista työperäisistä kuolemista Euroopan unionissa. Kaikista työperäisistä syövistä 80 prosenttia liittyy asbestiin, mikä johtaa vuosittain 88 000 kuolemantapaukseen.

Tämä ei ole hyväksyttävää. Euroopan ammatillinen yhteisjärjestö ETUC vaatii 28.4.2022 julkaistussa manifestissa nollaa kuolonuhria työssä. Manifesti kehottaa tekemään työterveydestä ja -turvallisuudesta ILO:n perusperiaatteen ja oikeuden työssä. Sillä estetään yhä useamman työntekijän kärsivän sairauksista, vammoista ja jopa kuolemalta.

ETUC muistuttaa, että työntekijöillä on oltava oikeus kieltäytyä vaarallisesta työstä ja osallistua ennaltaehkäisyä koskeviin päätöksiin työpaikallaan. Työntekijät tarvitsevat ammattiliittoja varmistaakseen, että nämä oikeudet toteutuvat.

Euroopan unionin nykyisessä terveys- ja turvallisuusstrategiassa todetaan, että ”kaikki toimet on toteutettava työperäisten kuolemantapausten vähentämiseksi mahdollisimman paljon työperäisiä kuolemia koskevan ”Vision Zero” -lähestymistavan mukaisesti”. Tämä on ETUCin mukaan hyvä asia, mutta siinä luvatuilla toimilla ei saavuteta nollakuolema-tasoa.

Nolla kuolemaa työssä ei ole utopistinen unelma, mutta se vaatii toimia. ETUC kehottaa manifestissa Euroopan unionia, sen jäsenvaltioiden hallituksia ja työnantajia sitoutumaan aidosti ja ryhtymään tarvittaviin toimiin nollakuoleman saavuttamiseksi työssä. Pelkkä puhe ei enää riitä.

”Tänä kansainvälisenä työläisten muistopäivänä muistamme ennen kaikkea ne, jotka ovat työn takia kuolleet. Ja jos poliitikot ovat halukkaita toimimaan, voimme saavuttaa nolla kuolemantapausta työssä vuoteen 2030 mennessä. On korkea aika asettaa työntekijöiden elämä etusijalle”, kommentoi ETUCin varapääsihteeri Claes-Mikael Ståhl ETUCin lehdistötiedotteessa.

Croatia: UATUC 28 April activities to focus on workplace mental health in the Covid-19 pandemic

UATUC is organizing an online conference on mental health in the workplace, focusing on the effects of pandemics on workers. The conference entitled „Mental health in the workplace: how has the pandemic affected workers?“ will be organized on the eve of IWMD, on 27th April, in an online form, via zoom, starting at 3 pm.

The conference will gather trade unionists – leaders, experts, shop stewards and OSH representatives, OSH experts, mental health experts and practitioners, representatives of the authorities and workers.

We will present the results of our online survery on the impact of pandemics on workers, measures taken by employers and trade unions; the survey would, among other, help us adjust our activities and advocacy in the field of OSH, in particular mental health.

The conference will also host professors from the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb, who will present their survey and discuss the topics of stigmatization and discrimination.

Together with the representatives of authorities, we will discuss the state of affairs and trends in OSH and mental health, and our demands vis-a-vis the mental health strategy still not adopted in Croatia.

The conference will serve also as a platform to present our demands in the field of OSH, including the demand for OSH to be recognized as a fundamental right.

For those of you who understand and speak Croatian, you can register via the link, and/or follow the discussion live-streamed on our Facebook pages (https://www.facebook.com/SavezSamostalnihSindikataHrvatske and https://www.facebook.com/RadPoMjeri).

For your information, we have also developed a dedicated website to inform workers (not only TU members) of their rights, including their rights in the context of the pandemic, as well as mental health advice: https://radpomjeri.eu/

Europe: Commission must rethink ‘astonishing’ omission of workers’ health and safety from work programme | ETUC

The ETUC is using Workers Memorial Day to appeal again to the European Commission to prioritize workplace health and safety in its plans for the next five years in light of the coronavirus crisis.

Trade unions first raised the alarm last September when occupational health and safety was omitted from Ursula von der Leyen’s political guidelines, pointing out that every year there are 4,000 fatal accidents at work and 120,000 people die of work-related cancer.

Despite that, the Commission continued to overlook this matter of life or death when it published its work programme for 2019 to 2024 in January.

The ETUC is now writing again to the Commission President to urge her to reassess her priorities in light of the coronavirus crisis, which has been responsible for hundreds of deaths at work.

In a separate letter sent to Nicholas Schmit, the European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights, today the ETUC and its affiliates have called on him to ensure Covid-19 is recognised as an occupational disease.

Our appeals come on Workers Memorial Day, the international day of remembrance for those who have lost their lives at work which is routinely observed by the European Commission.

The ETUC is calling on the European Commission to:

  • Include a plan for zero workplace deaths and the elimination of work-related cancer to its work programme for 2020.
  • Add Covid-19 to the EU directive on the protection of workers from risks related to exposure to biological agents to ensure the most effective and strict prevention measures
  • Enlarge the scope of the recommendation concerning the European schedule of occupational diseases to cover all professions exposed to Covid-19 at a higher level than for the general population
  • Enforce existing legislation in member states after a dramatic drop in workplace inspections in many countries

ETUC Deputy General Secretary Per Hilmersson said:

“The omission of health and safety from the European Commission’s agenda was astonishing before the crisis considering there are still 4,000 fatal accidents at work and 120,000 people dying of work-related cancer every year.

“In light of recent events, it would be grossly negligent to keep turning a blind eye to this matter of life and death.

“Yet workplace health and safety is still not given the importance it deserves in the Commission’s roadmap towards lifting Covid-19 containment measures. The exit strategy needs to have a hazard-based approach, with proper prevention measures put in place before we can return to work.

““It is high time for Ursula von der Leyen and her team to prioritize occupational health and safety, of which there was no mention in her political guidelines when elected Commission President and of which is still no mention in the recently leaked Commission work programme.”
