Every year on April 28 we pay our respects to, and remember, the workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents.
Sadly, Alberta lost 178 people to workplace injury or illness in 2021.
On April 28, we remember. Take a moment to honour lives forever changed.
