International Workers’ Memorial Day

Our research indicates that, in Scotland, more than 10 people die each day as a result of work-related incidents and illness.

Many die because their employer has decided that safety was not a priority.

International Workers’ Memorial Day is held annually on the 28th of April. This internationally recognised day is¬†to remember all people who have died through work and to refresh our resolve to fight for safe and healthy¬†working conditions for working people in Scotland and throughout the world.
