One Is Too Many.
Every year on April 28th the National Day of Mourning is held in Canada. This very important day is dedicated to remembering those individuals who have lost their lives, or suffered injury or illness while on the job or due to a work-related tragedy. While this can be a somber day, it is also a time to renew our commitment to protecting workers and preventing further workplace tragedies from happening.
Everyone deserves to go home safe at the end of the day.
