Each year on 28 April, International Workers Memorial Day (IWMD) is marked around the world to “Remember the Dead, Fight for the Living”. We remember those killed, made ill, or injured by their own or someone else’s work. Their pain and suffering and that of their families should not be forgotten. We also renew our commitment to, and demand once more, safe and healthy work for all.
