RCBY Recognizes National Day of Mourning

On April 28, people across the globe pause to pay respects to their brothers and sisters who have died or been injured at work.

Just over twenty years ago, the Canadian Labour Congress declared the date a Day of Mourning; a date that is now observed in over 100 countries.

In Canada, in 2008, there were at least two deaths per day on the job, and nearly a million workplace injuries.

By spreading the word, we hope to encourage remembrance, recognition of the issues, and the promotion of safe and healthy workplaces.
