Flags to Fly at Half-Mast April 28th for National Day of Mourning

The most recent statistics from the Association of Workers' Compensation Boards of Canada (AWCBC) tell us that in 2016, 905 workplace deaths were recorded in Canada. Among those dead were six young workers aged fifteen to nineteen years; and another twenty workers aged twenty to twenty-four years.

Entegrus will fly its flags at half-mast on Saturday, April 28th, in honour of workers who were injured, or lost their life due to a workplace accident.

The National Day of Mourning is held annually on April 28th. Workers throughout Canada are encouraged to observe a moment of silence to remember workers who died from accidents or occupational related diseases.

It is estimated that nearly one million work-related injuries and illnesses are reported each year in Canada, and workers in age groups under 45 are equally likely to be injured while on the job, while those over 45 had lower rates of work-related injuries and accidents.
