Greetings to you on this the ILO World Day for Safety and Health under the theme is Safety and Health at Work Can Save Lives. I wish to applaud my fellow safety and health professionals around the globe for working assiduously to save lives at work and reduce the global accident rate as much as we can. It is clear by the title of our job, that we are in this profession to protect the life and limbs of our co-workers. Our mandate is to ensure that everyone returns home safe and healthy every day. It is even more imperative during this COVID-19 pandemic that everyone appreciate the importance of various safety, health, and hygiene measures to control the spread of the virus. To save lives we follow a simple yet thorough hierarchy of controls.
