The theme of this year’s IWDM is: Health and Safety is a human right - let’s make it a reality.
Every year more people are killed at work than in wars. Most don't die of mystery ailments, or in tragic "accidents". They die because an employer decided their safety just wasn't that important a priority. International Workers’ Memorial Day (IWMD) 28 April commemorates those workers.
This year’s event is made even more poignant due to the work-related loss of life due to the COVID Pandemic.
Chair: Rozanne Foyer: STUC General Secretary
Pauline Rourke: CWU
