Workers’ Memorial Day is an opportunity to highlight the preventable nature of most workplace incidents and ill health and to promote campaigns and union organisation in the fight for improvements in workplace safety. The slogan for the day is Remember the dead – Fight for the livin. Each year, Unions NSW and WorkCover hold a service on the day to honour and remember those who lost their life at work.

We encourage employers and workers across the state to take time on the International Day of Mourning to think about the significance of work health and safety and how workplace incidents can affect those around them. At the service, families are invited to add ‘memory cards’ and flowers to the Memory Lines sculpture in honour of their loved ones.

In this day mourning prayers done by around the world. We encourage employers and workers across the state to take time on the International Day of Mourning to think about the significance of work health and safety and how workplace incidents can affect those around them. To get more events view here.
