Day of Mourning – April 28
April 26, 2013
Actsafe staff attended a ceremony this morning in Vancouver in remembrance of workers who have lost their lives to workplace accidents and exposures. One surviving spouse who spoke this morning ended her story by urging all workers to take care of one another to prevent tragic accidents.
“There’s no going back from something like this,” said Lynn Rozenboom, wife of fatally injured worker Dirk Rozenboom. “Our lives were shattered that day, and there’s a hole that will never be filled.”
In B.C. last year:
- 149 workplace fatalities (142 men and seven women)
- Four young worker fatalities (between 15 and 24 years of age)
- 86 workers died of diseases, most of which are related to asbestos exposures; 41 workers died from traumatic workplace injuries; and 22 in work-related motor vehicle incidents
- 77 percent of work-related fatalities in 2012 were in four industries: manufacturing (35); construction (33); transportation and warehousing (28); and primary resources (20)
Attend one of the many ceremonies planned around the province leading up to April 28, the National Day of Mourning.
