Workers’ Memorial Day, also known as International Workers’ Memorial Day or International Commemoration Day for Dead and Injured, takes place today on April 28, 2014. This day is an international day of remembrance and action for workers killed, injured, disabled, or made unwell by their work. To recognize the preventable nature of most accidents and ill health in the workplace. These accidents span many ages, industries, and causes of death, and occur in every state. The slogan for Workers Memorial Day is “Remember the dead – Fight for the living”. We need to not only remember the fallen but call attention to preventable mishaps and acquire reasonable and practical health and safety solutions for employees, employers and families.
