Every year on April 28 we pay our respects to, and remember, the thousands of workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents.
We also honour the many families and friends who have been deeply affected by these tragedies.
Every worker has the right to return home safe and sound at the end of each workday.
By working together – with employers, workers and our health and safety partners – we can prevent worker injuries and deaths before they occur.
If we all do our part we each and every one of us can help minimize workplace incidents and fatalities and ensure that every worker goes home to their family at the end of the day.
