The AIAS Network organizes from 24th to 29th April 2017 the Safety Heroes Week. The events of this campaign will take place all over Italy and anyone interested in the initiative could take part with an own event or can become sponsor of this national campaign.

In particular, on the occasion of Workers Memorial Day (WMD) of 28th April 2017, AIAS will organize a conference in Rome at Confcommercio headquarters in which the multiple interconnections between health and safety at work policies and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of UN Agenda 2030 will be highlighted.

The issues discussed at the conference, with the participation of representatives of the Ministry of Labour and INAIL will also be related to the topic of optimization of the collection and use of statistics on occupational safety and health (OSH) in support of the initiative launched by the international Labour Organization (ILO).
The Safety Heroes Week big closing event will be held on April 29th 2017 in Milan, at Teatro Filodrammatici where the famous Italian actor Lino Guanciale will interpret some readings and will award the winners of the competition: #MyHero.
