International Workers Memorial Day 2024


Add to Calendar



Event Details

Sunday, 28 April 2024, is International Workers Memorial Day. It's the date each year that we remember all those killed at work: "Remember the dead, fight for the living!"

Shockingly, every year, more people are killed at work than in wars. Safety at work remains a priority for TSSA, and we actively campaign and negotiate for safer, healthier workplaces for members. 

Take time on Sunday 28 April to remember all those who lost their lives at work.

  • Hold a minute's silence at 12 noon in your workplace.
  • Submit a tribute to the Workers Memorial Wall for someone who died at or as a result of work.
  • Download and share images on social media or print posters for workplace noticeboards.
  • Join an event or organise and publicise your own on the TUC interactive map.

There's more information about International Workers Memorial Day, including how to get involved, history and campaign ideas, on the TUC website.
