International Day of Remembrance of All Labor Victims
International Day of Remembrance of All Labor Victims celebrated on April 28, simultaneously with the Day of Labor Protection. The commemorative date was established after publicizing the number of people who died while performing official duties: 5-6 thousand people die at work every day.
The history of the commemoration begins in 1989, when the trade unions of Canada and the United States of America held a day of remembrance for the fallen workers. The International Labor Organization (ILO) is the founder of the modern holiday, which has been held since 2003. The goal of the initiators is to draw public attention to the topic of labor protection.
IN International Day of Remembrance of All Labor Victims conduct events that are aimed at honoring the injured, sick and dead at the workplace. Checks are carried out for compliance with the working conditions of safety equipment and employees’ knowledge of this topic. Plans for improving occupational health and safety are being prepared: risks are analyzed, and the probability of injury in certain situations is assessed.
