International Workers’ Memorial Day

International Workers’ Memorial Day 2018 falls on Saturday, 28 April. The Construction Industry Federation (CIF) in conjunction with Congress, IBEC and the Health & Safety Authority (HSA) seeks to commemorate those who have been killed or injured in work-related accidents.

In the past 10-years (from 2008 to end 2017), 501 persons were killed in work-related accidents, with 47 fatalities in 2017. Protection of own and co-worker’s health, safety and welfare should be to the forefront of everyone’s minds, and Workers’ Memorial Day represents an opportunity to consolidate focus on a subject of great consequence for all.
