The Institute for Occupational Health and Safety Development Iohsad Phils will hold its Workers’ Memorial Day activity on April 26, Wednesday morning in front of the Department of Justice. We will join the Kentex workers and their families to demand justice for all the victims of the workplace fire that claimed the lives of more than 72 workers almost two years ago. We will post other updates on our WMD activities in the coming days.
