Day of Mourning – April 28

Maybe you’ve never experienced a close call at work or been the victim of a serious incident. But chances are you know someone who has. 

In Canada alone, 852 workers died from workplace-related injuries or illnesses, and another 232,629 suffered a lost-time injury or illness in 2015.*

April 28, is the International Day of Mourning.

It’s a day to remember those injured or killed on the job and those suffering from an occupational illness. 

It’s a day to remember that every moment counts and to work safely for ourselves, our co-workers, our friends, and our families.
