We commemorate the workers who have lost their lives, were injured or suffered illness due to workplace related hazards and incidents.
We as Canadians understand how important it is to ensure all workers are safe and protected to minimise accidents.
There are risks in every job, and safety should be one of the core values in any workplace.
“Every worker has the right to return home safe and sound at the end of each work day.
By working together – with employers, workers and our health and safety partners – we can prevent worker injuries and deaths before they occur.” – Ministry of Labour
