What is Workers Memorial Day?
International Workers Memorial Day (IWMD) takes place all over the world on 28 April each year.
The purpose of IWMD is two-fold. Firstly it is about not forgetting those who have died, been injured, or made ill by their work. Secondly it is about ensuring that this tragic loss and suffering are used to reinvigorate the campaign for healthier and safer work.
The campaign slogan is "Remember the dead, fight for the living."
In this time of austerity, it is ever more important to protect our Health and Safety legislation, which is constantly under attack.
The Service will last for approx 30mins.
