The world day for safety and health at work, observed since 2003 (which is held on the 28th of April yearly-the day the World Trade Union movement holds its commemoration Day for dead and injured workers- to hour the emories of victims of occupational accidents and diseases and orgainze world wide mobilizations and campaigns), is an awereness-building campaign, which aims to focus international attention on emerging trends in occupational safety and health and on the magnitude of work-related injuries, diseases and fatalities globally. This year's theme: Prevension of occupational diseases.

World wide occupational diseases continues to be the leading cause of work-related deaths. According to International Labour Organisation's estimates, 2.34 million occupational fatalities occurs every year and only 321,000 are due to accidents. the reamining 2.02 million deaths are due to various types of work related diseases, which correspond to a daily average of more than 5,500 deaths.

The remaining 2.34 million fatalities is generaly neglected. Contacts with various harmful substances such as chlorine, and paints, etc., lead to illness and death.
