Established in 1988, Disability Awareness Week (DAW) was inspired by Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion World Tour. DAW aims to raise public awareness about accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities.
Disability Awareness Week activities are co-ordinated at the provincial level by the Premier's Council on the Status of Disabled Persons.

Safety and Health Week (formerly NAOSH Week) is the ideal time for workplaces to re-evaluate their safety programs, educate workers on the importance of health and safety, and promote healthy lifestyles at home and at work.
Steps for Life is a fundraising walk in support of Threads of Life, a charity providing support to families affected by workplace tragedy. Join us as we step forward to raise awareness about the importance of workplace health and safety. To learn more about this walk, visit Steps for Life.

We encourage all New Brunswickers to take a moment on April 28th to remember those lives that were needlessly lost.
Every year, New Brunswickers are injured at their workplace, some of them fatally.
In 1984, the Canadian Labour Congress established April 28 as a day for workers and employers to remember those workers who have died and been injured, and to reinforce their commitment to workplace health and safety. April 28, known as the Day of Mourning, is observed across Canada and recognized in more than 100 countries worldwide.
Your leadership and commitment to safety are vital to ensure every New Brunswicker safely returns to their family each and every day. We thank you for your continued commitment to improving workplace health and safety and protecting our loved ones.
