National Workers’ Memorial Day Ireland April 28th 2019
April 28th is an important date. It’s the date every year when trade union and employer groups worldwide, as well as individual organisations, remember those who have been killed or injured in work-related accidents. In Ireland the figures are staggering. In the 10-year period between 2009 and 2018, 485 people were killed in work-related accidents and thousands more badly injured. Last year alone 38 people were killed. These are shocking statistics by any standards.
Monaghan County Council has arranged various topics for employees to remind them of the importance of safety, health and welfare in the workplace.
