Workers’ Memorial Day is held on 28 April every year. All over the world, workers and their representatives hold events and vigils to remember the victims of workplace accidents and occupational diseases.
Workers’ Memorial Day is the day when the International Labour Movement remembers those who have been killed or injured in workplace accidents and those who have died from occupational diseases. The event started in North America in 1986 and has been supported by Usdaw since 1995. The Day is now a global event and is officially recognised by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and by the International Trade Union Movement (ITUC).
Theme for 2021: Health and safety is a fundamental right at work
