The worldsteel Day for Safety and Health, previously known as Steel Safety Day, takes place on 28th April every year, coinciding with the International Labor Organization (ILO)’s World Day for Safety and Health at Work.

It promotes the prevention of injuries and diseases in the global steel industry by ensuring the availability of adequate and effective controls.

Why did we change the name from Steel Safety Day? A full explanation here.

On this da,y we release our Safety and health in the steel industry: Data report and make clear to the outside world that protecting the safety and health of everyone who works in or around the steel industry is our core value and must never be compromised in the face of other business challenges. We typically also release the first items in a suite of training support materials from a safety equipment provider. (see right-hand column for previous years’ assets)
