Today, April 28, marks Canada’s National Day of Mourning.
Each year we set aside this day to remember the thousands of workers who have been killed, injured, or fallen sick due to a work-related incident.
This day is also a valuable reminder of the importance of safety training and practice, and, as the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety shares, “to renew our commitment to improve health and safety in the workplace and prevent further injuries, illnesses, and deaths.” This message is even more important as our workers and workplaces face the biggest public health crisis of our time.
Thank you to everyone in our community that buys our training and chooses to make workplace safety a priority each and every day. You are the reason we do what we do.
You can learn more about the event on the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety website.
