For the judge of the TRT-8, Paulo Isan Coimbra Júnior, regional director of the Seguro Trabalho programme, “football is undeniably one of the greatest passions of the inhabitants of Pará. It is very important to take advantage of this passion to tackle another equally important subject, the prevention of accidents and occupational diseases. It is the passion put at the service of awareness”, he underlines.
green april – The April Verde national campaign aims to raise everyone’s awareness of the importance of preventing accidents at work. Workplace accident prevention actions are concentrated in April, because the period has two important dates on the subject: World Health Day (7/4) and Day in memory of victims of work accidents and occupational diseases ( 28/4). The second date, established at the initiative of Canadian unions, was chosen because of an explosion that killed 78 workers in a mine in the state of Virginia, United States, in 1969.
