Day of Mourning

 

 


This short video (3:25) reminds us to continue to strengthen and establish safer work practices and conditions.

 

 

On April 28, we honour and pay our respects to those who have lost their lives, been injured, or became ill due to work-related incidents. Day of Mourning is a Day of Mourning Logopowerful reminder for all of us to renew our commitment to improving health and safety in our workplaces and prevent further work-related injuries and deaths.

In 2022, Alberta lost 161 individuals to work-related injury or illness. Between 2019 and 2021, more than a third of all workplace fatalities in Alberta were in the construction industry.

At 11 a.m., please join us in observing a moment of silence.

Steps for Life

Across Alberta, our communities are coming together in support of those affected by workplace tragedies. In May, Threads of Life hosts its flagship fundraiser, Steps for Life. Steps for Life is traditionally a five-kilometre family walk that aims to educate the community about the devastating ripple effects of each workplace tragedy and how we can work together to prevent others being injured or killed on the job.
