Latest News > Workers Memorial Day
For everyone with an interest in the safety, health and welfare of people at work, April 28th is an important date. It’s the date every year when trade union and employer groups worldwide, as well as individual organisations, remember those who have been killed or injured in work-related accidents.
In Ireland the figures are staggering. In the 3 year period between 2014 and 2016, 155 people were killed in work-related accidents and thousands more badly injured. Last year alone 44 people were killed. These are shocking statistics by any standards.
As a key stakeholder MMD will join efforts nationally including with Ibec, the Health and Safety Authority and Construction Industry Federation to mark the occasion and will be running the following range of initiatives on the day;
In-house Toolbox Talk
Inclusion in Website/Social Media/Newsletter content
MMD will organise a Guest speaker presentation to our staff
MMD will also release to your local/national media marking your event / the day
Worker safety and health is everyone’s business and can only be tackled through a collaborative approach. April 28th presents an important opportunity to remember and to consolidate everyone’s focus around a single day. It will be an annually recurring national event.
