On April 28, we all come together to remember the workers who were killed, injured or disabled at work. In 2016, we lost 144 women and men to workplace injury or illness in Alberta.
To remember them, we have developed a memorial poster in recognition of the day. This poster will appear at workplaces, public places and in ceremonies across the province as a remembrance and a tribute to the workers killed or injured on the job, and a reminder that we need to work together to make workplaces safer.
We have also included a small vinyl sticker to provide a tangible reminder of the significance of April 28. If you are interested in distributing them to visitors, we would be happy to provide you with a supply.
We will be lowering our flags to half-mast on April 28. We invite you to join us in marking this important day by doing the same.
