What is Workers' Memorial Day?
Every year more people are killed at work than in wars. Most don`t die of mystery ailments, or in tragic `accidents`. They die because an employer decided their safety just wasn`t that important a priority.
Worker`s Memorial Day takes place every April 28th - as an international day of remembrance and action for workers killed, disabled, injured or made unwell by their work.
