International Day of Mourning
On 28 April each year, countries around the world pause to remember loved ones who have lost their lives due to a workplace incident or occupational disease.
Every year, workers, loved ones and colleagues die in NSW workplaces.
Together with Unions NSW, to honour and remember those who died, we commemorate this day.
And we encourage employers and workers across the state to take time on this International Day of Mourning to think about the significance of work health and safety, and how workplace incidents can affect those around them.
We encourage you to observe a minute's silence at 11am, to reflect on the importance of returning home safely at the end of each working day.
