TUICO the BWI affiliate in Tanzania has commemorated the IWMD 2023 by a public campaign for OHS as a fundamental right for workers. The unions used the opportunity to give certificates to unions health and safety inspectors at workplaces who have received appropriate trainings.
The Tanzania Union of Industrial and Commercial Workers (TUICO) joins BWI in marking this year’s International Workers’ Memorial Day
TUICO is correct. Workers don’t die at work because of unexplained illnesses, and/or tragic, freak accidents. Workers are killed because employers and governments think less of their health and safety.
No less than recognising workplace health and safety as a fundamental right of all workers will enable trade unions to fully turn the tide against work-related fatal accidents and ailments. #IWMD2022
