A Day To Honour The Fallen Worker


Today is the National Day of Mourning for those killed on the job here in Canada. Every day, an average of 2 workers are killed on the job, with an average of 835 workers passing away every year. This day is a raw reminder of how far we have to go in order to make our workplaces safe not only from ergonomic issues, but from threats of potential fatalities.

As far as posting on this blog goes, it has slowed considerably lately due to the commencement of my new research job. Things were busy this past week, but as I adjust to my schedule, I will be posting more often. Expect a post early next week!
