The International Labour Standards on Occupational Safety and health sets forth the principle that workers should be protected from sickness,disease and injury arising from their employment. Yet for millions of workers the result is very different. An estimated 160 millions suffer from work related diseases and there are an estimated 270 millions fatal and non-fatal works related accidents happened per year. The suffering caused by such accidents and illnesses to workers and their families is incalculable. These tragedies are preventable through the implementation of sound prevention,reporting and inspection practices to provide for maximum Safety at work which also included the introduction of a preventive Safety and health culture, the promotion and development of relevant instrument and technical assistance.
