Safety & Health at Work

The purpose is to build a positive safety and health culture in the workplace to prevent occupational accidents and diseases.

We have to recognise that there will be new and emerging occupational risks caused by technical innovation or by social or organizational change, such as:

  • New technologies and production processes, e.g. nanotechnology, biotechnology

  • New working conditions, e.g. higher workloads, work intensification from downsizing, poor conditions associated with migration for work, jobs in the informal economy

  • Emerging forms of employment, e.g. self-employment, outsourcing, temporary contracts

So we're inviting businesses, legal entities, governments, healthcare organisations to talk about hybrid workplaces, mental health needs, laws and governance and how they make work life a better place.

International Guitar Month to promote guitar sales around the world

We invite pubs, clubs, music shops to showcase their business and music scene.

History of the Guitar

A plucked four-string instrument was named a guitar in the 14th century in Spain. It resembled a vihuela, a guitar-shaped instrument played in Spain. As far as the name is concerned, ‘guitar’ comes from ‘guitarra,’ a Spanish word. It is also assumed that ‘guitar’ is associated with the Latin word ‘cithara’ and the ancient Sanskrit word ‘tar,’ which means ‘string.’ Also, ‘guitarra latina’ was a curved-body instrument that comprised four strings and was used as a musical instrument in the medieval period in Europe. The contemporary guitar originated in Spain, however, the oldest surviving guitar-like instrument is from ancient Egypt.

History of the Guitar as featured in Brilliant-Online

As centuries passed, the guitar went through many changes and transformed into something similar to the modern guitar. Yes, the first guitar was a lot different from what it looks like today. Guitars in the 16th century consisted of C-F-A-D tuning and were called baroque guitars. Later, a lower string E was added to it.

In the 19th century, Antonio de Torres Jurado started building guitars that were similar to new acoustic guitars. It is assumed that most of the modern-day guitars are derivatives of Antonio’s designs. Thus, he was called the Stradivari of guitars (because another Antonio — Antonio Stradivari — was a world-famous violin maker.)

George Beauchamp along with Adolph Rickenbacker made the first-ever electric guitar in the United States in the 20th century. Following this invention, a lot of other types of guitars are made in many variations.
