World Day for Safety and Health at Work: preserving the mental health of young workers and future generations
This year the World Day for Safety and Health at Work (SafeDay) of the International Labour Organization (ILO) was set for last week, 28 April. With this campaign the ILO aims to accelerate action to achieve the relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) linked to occupational health & safety.
AEIP in collaboration with the EU Alliance for Mental Health/Employment & Work prepared a joint statement, stressing on the need to address occupational mental health in the context of European-level health & safety policies.
The statement is in line with the current AEIP work on occupational mental health and health & safety at work and the overall focus of the EU Mental Health Alliance of which AEIP is a member.
