Workers' memorial day

Today is the 9th International Commemoration Day For Dead And Injured Workers, coordinated by the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU). This day highlights workers' rights to work in a healthy, safe environment, and employers' accountability. An information literate employer would, of course, make it easy for workers to know about and understand their rights, and understand the health and safety implications of being in that workplace.
