In the celebration of the
World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2013
“Prevention of Occupational Diseases"
April 28 was declared as the World Day for Safety and Health at Work declared by the International Labor Organization (ILO). It is an international commemoration for the workers who suffered injuries, diseases or were fallen at work. It also celebrates those health events that were successfully prevented. As every year, PAHO has joined it, aiming to strengthening capacities in the countries for improving and promoting worker’s health and wellbeing, and to preventing Occupational Diseases (ODs) in the Americas. To meet this goal, we have organized a short series of three webinars aimed to raise awareness and share knowledge about the creation and implementation of policies and strategies to prevent and diagnose ODs. The ODs Seminar series will take place as follows
