Remember those we've lost

Day of Mourning – April 28, 2018

Every year on April 28, Canadian workers join with other workers around the world to remember those who have died, been injured, or become sick on the job. Ceremonies are held, a moment of silence is observed, and health and safety initiatives are organized.

While it’s important to remember, it’s essential to make sure this does not keep happening. The Day of Mourning is a reminder that workers continue to lose their lives or get hurt.

The Infrastructure Health & Safety Association encourages you to mark this day in a significant way—to think about those whom we have lost and those whose lives continue to be affected by workplace injuries. But also to make some lasting changes at your workplace to help ensure it does not happen again. Let us learn from the past and make the future a safer and healthier one.
