Worker's Memorial Day - 2022-04-28
What is Worker's Memorial Day?
Each year on April 28th, we should remember the people who died and suffered from work-related injuries or illnesses. This day is also known as International Workers’ Memorial Day or International Commemoration Day (ICD) for Dead and Injured or Day of Mourning. Its slogan is Remember the dead – Fight for the living. It's a day for remembering work-related deaths and illnesses. Some companies will host events and do campaigns and awareness events. Not all activities that raise awareness are as obvious as setting out shoes. Some of the most effective forms of raising awareness are religious services, wreaths, planting trees, and unveiling monuments. One of the most moving of these is the act of laying out shoes to remember those who have died at work. The transportation industry is the most dangerous occupation in America. It's responsible for more deaths than any other occupation. The next four most populous causes of deaths at work are workplace violence, slips and falls, contact with equipment and objects, and exposure to harmful substances and environments. However, these four causes cause more deaths at work combined than transportation alone. The topmost dangerous occupations are agriculture, construction, installation, mining, and manufacturing. Every year, this day reminds us of what we can do to improve workplace safety.
