International Workers Memorial Day, April 28th, is a date that is always marked in Hundred Acres diary. A day to remember all those who have lost their lives at work.
Established by trade unions and supported by health and safety practitioners, we remember those who were killed through work and renew our energies to do all we can to ensure those tragedies are not repeated.
This year it feels so much more poignant. In the midst of a pandemic where the world is at risk, it is no surprise that the theme is Coronavirus.
Losing a loved one is hard. Losing someone to an accident at work is hard. As a safety professional working and supporting colleagues when someone has lost their life, is hard.
At the moment, the number of deaths every day from Covid-19 is beyond hard – it’s unbearable.
While we are not able to gather for memorials like we have done in other years, nothing will stop us remembering all of those we have lost.
We hope you will join us…
Remember the dead, fight for the living.
