The National COSH 2020 Dirty Dozen — Special Coronavirus Edition puts a spotlight on employers who put workers and communities at risk from unsafe practices. This year, we focus on employers who are failing to protect workers and the public from exposure to COVID-19, as well as other hazards across a range of industries and occupations.
Today is International Workers’ Memorial Day. Join us, and some special guests, as we pay our respects to workers killed in the workplace over the past year. Every worker deserves to come home safely at the end of the day, and on this day we pledge to remember the dead and fight like hell for the living.
Current circumstances preclude us from being together on this day of remembrance, but we are together in spirit and in solidarity as we conduct this year’s ceremony online. VTHC
Ramazan AGAR, President of YOL-IS, Turkey (Türkiye Yol-İş Sendikası) says that all of humanity, particularly workers, are in an important decisive moment in the battle against COVID-19. Protect Workers! Stop COVID-19!”
As part of BWI’s week-long campaign to mark the International Workers’ Memorial Day on 28 April, we prepared a short video on how unions and workers can protect their health and safety against COVID-19.
BWI cannot overemphasis the need to do these simple, yet life-saving acts.
✅ Wash your hands.
✅ Wear a mask.
✅ Keep your distance.
