Day of Mourning 2013

Day of Mourning 2013 event listing now online at WHSC

“Mourn for the Dead, Fight for the Living.” On April 28, International Day of Mourning, this slogan will echo worldwide as workers, friends and families will gather to remember workers who have been killed, suffer disease or been injured as a result of work.

An essential part of our “fight for the living” is quality occupational health and safety education. Workers and their representatives have long understood its value, indeed its necessity. For them health and safety education is no ivory tower pursuit. For them education best comes in the form of real life, quality training.

On April 28, workers and their representatives will remember fallen workers and will recommit their efforts to lead our movement for change. They will train for it and then work for it.

The Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) supports these efforts every day of the year. As Ontario’s designated health and safety training centre, WHSC’s comprehensive training helps workplaces meet and exceed health and safety laws.

In support of Day of Mourning, WHSC has also created a brochure, stickers and buttons to promote the day’s events in more than 40 Ontario communities. Be sure to check out the listing of events and plan to attend at least one of them. Be sure too, to visit the WHSC’s web pages again in the weeks ahead for an up-to-date listing of events. Events will be added as new information comes in.
