Safe work is a right not a privilege.

Workers' Memorial Day, held on 28 April every year, brings together workers and their representatives from all over the world to remember the dead and fight for the living.

The theme for #IWMD20

The theme chosen for the day is: ‘Tackling psychosocial hazards at work – taking the stress out of the job’. It highlights the harm caused by occupational stress and related conditions, such as work-related depression, anxiety, burnout, work-related alcohol and drug misuse and work-related suicides.

#IWMD20 can shine a spotlight on the harm caused by low pay, insecure work and hours, excessive workloads and inadequate staffing that can lead to workplace stress, The bad and weak management practices that have contribute to the explosion of work-related psychosocial problems such as punitive sickness absence policies, disciplinary procedures, oppressive performance management, targets and appraisal systems.
