Last year, 158 B.C. workers died from a workplace injury or disease. Now, families and communities are left to mourn.
Across Canada, April 28 has been designated the Day of Mourning. As workers, families, employers, and communities come together at ceremonies held around the province to remember those who have lost their lives to work-related incidents or occupational disease, and renew the commitment to creating healthy and safe workplaces.
Day of Mourning BC has published an excellent set of resources to support activities on International Workers’ Memorial Day.
