April 28 is the Global Safety Day, which was initiated by the International Labor Organization (ILO) since 2003. Its aim is to promote safety, health and decent work and life. This year, Atlas Copco launched a Group Safety Day campaign worldwide on April 28, to improve employee's safety awareness in their work and life.

On April 28, more than 20 companies of Atlas Copco in China launched the campaign by hosting different safety activities such as meeting, training, presentation, competition, simulation, group discussions, etc., to enhance our colleagues’ safety behavior in office, workshop and on the road.

Every year some two million men and women lose their lives in accidents or illness related to work safety around the world. Seeing this, Atlas Copco decided to bring safety to a whole new level. The employees are required to always think safety first when they do anything, at any time.
