Day of Mourning
It’s who we come home to at the end of the day that makes our safety so valuable. The sad truth is that New Brunswickers are still dying from workplaces accidents and diseases - and one death is one too many.
The devastation of a workplace fatality is far-reaching, impacting families, co-workers, employers and communities.
On April 28th each year, we remember those lives that were needlessly lost by observing a Day of Mourning. While we won't be participating in community gatherings this year because of COVID-19, WorkSafeNB urges employers and employees to show their support on Wednesday, April 28 by observing a moment of silence and if possible, lowering flags to half-mast.
Your leadership and commitment to safety are vital to ensure every New Brunswicker safely returns to their family each and every day.
WorkSafeNB thanks you for your continued commitment to improving workplace health and safety and protecting our loved ones.
