Modern working environments pose greater risks to workers, and to alert workers to such dangers, the Department of Labour will be hosting a campaign to celebrate the World Day for Safety and Health at Work.
The event will be celebrated at the Alberton Municipality offices in Ekurhuleni on Friday, 28 April.
The day aims to promote the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases in the workplace.
