Day of Mourning
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.
Every day on average, 637 Canadians suffer a lost-time injury or occupational disease at work. Two or three workers die each day.
In total, 232,629 Canadian workers suffered a lost-time injury or disease and 852 lost their lives 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 il>lness.
It’s a day to remember that every moment counts and to work safely.
