Noteworthy: Workers Memorial Day April 28 2005

Every year health and safety activists and unions around the globe set aside a day to remember the thousands of workers who are killed an injured on the job each year. Jordan Barab, a fellow blogger and a tireless and impassioned advocate of worker safety, suggests that the day should a time to "recharge our batteries" and rededicate our commitment to worker safety. He points us to some resources for April 28. If you have any doubt about the importance of such a day, just read through one of his chilling reports of the weekly toll.

We suggest that it might be a good day for risk managers and employers everywhere to conduct an audit of their own record and practices. Safety should be an ongoing concern every day in every work place - but perhaps this would be a fitting day for employers to take an inventory - what better way to remember to those who died on the job?
