Commemoration of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work in Central and Eastern Europe
The 2011 World Day for Safety and Health at Work focused on the implementation of an Occupational Safety and Health Management System (OSHMS) as a tool for continual improvement in the prevention of workplace incidents and accidents. An OSHMS is a preventive method to implement safety and health measures which consists of four steps and incorporates the principle of continual improvement. Its principles are based on the PDCA Cycle: PLAN, DO, CHECK, ACT.
Several events were organized in Central and Eastern Europe to celebrate the World Day and to highlight the importance of occupational safety in preventing workplace accidents.
