Belgium: EPSU’s firefighters network mark International Workers Memorial Day at Brussels meeting

EPSU’s Firefighters Network met in Brussels today on this  International Workers’ Memorial Day. This is the day when we remember the 168,000 people who die each year from work-related accidents and diseases. And recognise that over 3 million people report accidents at work each year.
