World Day for Safety and Health at Work

Every 28 April, the International Labour Organization commemorates the World Day for Safety and Health at Work, with a different theme each year that is related to occupational safety and health.

This year, the theme will focus on exploring the impacts of climate change on occupational safety and health.

Changing weather patterns around the world are having considerable impacts on the world, particularly where they concern the safety and health of workers. Examples of occupational risks that are exacerbated by climate change include excessive heat, UV radiation, air pollution, major industrial accidents, extreme weather events, an increase in vector-borne diseases and increased exposure to chemicals.

At Conference Craft, we’re doing what we can to help with climate change by practising eco-friendly event management: we continually assess and monitor the processes and products that we use for their impact on the environment.

Conference lighting and special effects generally demand high levels of electricity. When selecting the best solution for our clients’ events, we always recommend low-energy products if they are available. In doing this, we help to minimise the energy consumption demanded for an event whilst also keeping the drive by our clients to lower their carbon footprint.

When building staging, we often use timber. Our objective is always to source from suppliers who stock sustainable timber that is certified by either the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Schemes.
