Thirteen years ago Michael Lovett (pictured) lost his lower leg to a workplace injury. This year, he will be among the many taking part in the Day of Mourning to honour the 173 B.C. workers who died on the job in 2014.
On April 28, join workers, families, and employers at ceremonies across the province, as we remember the workers who lost their lives as a result of workplace injury or illness, and renew our commitment to creating safer workplaces.
You can also plan your own Day of Mourning ceremony using resources in the event toolkit available online.
