Join us in honouring the memory of those who lost their lives to workplace injury or disease on April 28.
April 28 has been designated the national Day of Mourning, a time when we all come together to remember those who have lost their lives due to work-related incidents or occupational diseases. Last year 158 workers died as a result of their work.
Sadly, in a recent three-week period alone, 11 more workers in British Columbia died while at work. These deaths are not isolated to a specific industry or workplace; they happened in construction, forestry, marine, tourism, and transportation — and in locations throughout the province.
Fish Safe will be attending the Day of Mourning event at Steveston Fisherman's Memorial.
Saturday, April 28th at 12pm
Fisherman's Memorial at Garry Point Park
12011 Seventh Ave, Richmond, BC
Day of Mourning events are held throughout the province. For more information about this year’s Day of Mourning events, visit dayofmourning.bc.ca.
