Name of the Campaign: Evidence-based Prevention Campaign on Chemical & Mechanical Safety
Launch date: Feb 23rd, 2021
SAA-CIWCE, with the support from GIZ, initiated a targeted prevention campaign on Chemical and Mechanical Safety in 2020. Before the themes of the campaign were finalised, rigorous primary and secondary research on accidents in the workplace was conducted by SAA-CIWCE and GIZ and a few recurring themes were identified, which mainly focused on mechanical and chemical hazards in the workplace.
Through this campaign, the aim is to develop and sustain positive attitudes and behaviour change in the workplace, among employers and workers by ensuring that they have the relevant information and awareness on chemical and mechanical safety to protect themselves from immediate or long-term hazards, threats and illnesses.
