April 28th marks International Workers’ Memorial Day (IWMD). This day aims to commemorate all those who have been killed, injured, or made ill at work and to recommit to safer workplaces. The Irish Congress of Trade Unions is using the slogan ‘Workplace health & safety – it’s your right’.
Workers’ Memorial Day represents an opportunity to remember those we have lost, and to celebrate the contribution of those who continue to work to make us all safer. Stay safe in your workplace, it could be a factory, an office, a farm, a school etc, think about your safety and the safety of others who may be affected by what you do.
