Today marks international Workers’ Memorial Day.
Across the world, Trade Unions, health and safety campaigners, workers and their loved ones remember those who have lost their lives because of work.
Today’s message is ‘remember the dead – fight for the living’, and it is important to recognise how much still needs to be done to make sure that nobody puts their lives at serious risk for simply performing their jobs.
Being as safe as possible at work is something that should be a basic condition for all of us, and making sure that this is always backed up by the law is something I strongly support.
