NRDCL Observed World Day for Health and Safety at Work

NRDCL observed the ’World Day for Health and Safety at Work’ themed ’Health and Safety and the future of work’ on 28th April 2019 at NRDCL Corporate Office, Thimphu. About 150 employees from Sha Branch, Wang Service Center, Rinpung Region and NRDCL Head Office attended the event.

The day was observed with the emphasis on safety at work place and the importance of raising awareness to all on the health, safety and prevention of work related accidents and diseases. The day was dedicated to the five NRDCL employees who lost their lives to work related accidents over the past many years. All attendees committed to the cause of health and safety at workplace and signed a safety pledge in the interest of self, family, community, organization and the nation at large.

The formal session of the day was followed by demonstration and hands-on practical training on using the portable fire extinguishers during emergency. As the main program of the day, general health screening was conducted for all employees attending the event with the help from a team of health experts from JDWNRH.

Since 1991, this day has been observed as an ’International Commemoration Day for Dead and Injured Workers’ by Trade Union. And from 2003, International Labour Organization started celebrating this day as ’World Day for Health and Safety at Work’ to raise awareness on health and safety and prevent work related accidents and diseases. Therefore, this day is recognized both as a day of commemoration and celebration.

NRDCL will also be observing this day every year henceforth.
