Workers' Memorial Day
- Thursday 28 April 2022
Safe work is a right not a privilege
Workers' Memorial Day, held on 28 April every year, brings together workers and their representatives from all over the world to remember the dead and fight for the living. In 2021 the theme was: Health and Safety is a fundamental workers' right.
Remember those we have lost and
organise in their memory.
