Day of Mourning


This video 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.

Sadly, Alberta lost 178 people to work-related injury or illness in 2021.

Every year, the ACSA and its eight Regional Safety Committees (RSCs) co-host ceremonies and activities to pay tribute. During the events, we remember and observe a moment of silence at 11 a.m.
