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, 904 workers died from workplace-related injuries or illnesses, and another 240,682 suffered a lost-time injury or illness in 2016.*
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.
