Day of Mourning

Let us take a moment to reflect on the lives lost or injured in the workplace.

April 28 is the National Day of Mourning. It is a day to commemorate workers who have been killed, injured or have suffered illness due to workplace-related hazards.


On this day, while we honour and remember the many lives lost or injured on the job, we also hope to strengthen resolve among Ontario workplaces, to renew their commitment to improving occupational health and safety. It is a day to remember the dead, but it is also a plea to protect both current and future workers. Together, we can prevent further workplace injuries, diseases and tragedies.

Let us start today.


We’ve developed resources to help employers, workers and the media get involved this April 28. For more information on how you can improve health and safety in your workplace, please contact your consultant.
