Health at work is a major challenge for our society. Strain today is the same as it was 100 years ago. Nothing has changed, nothing is happening, and nothing is getting better. Workers suffer just as much as they did in the nineteen hundreds with difficult, repetitive tasks. Now, more than ever, is the time for a major global change, for a boost in national and international responses to the epidemic that is professional illness. This will enable us to really protect the health, and ultimately, the life of workers.
