Today, 28th April, marks International Workers’ Memorial Day. Today we remember the people who have very sadly lost their lives due to work.
This is a particularly important day for everyone here at Asbestos Justice as many of our clients have been affected by asbestos through work. This may be because they have worked with asbestos themselves, or because they have loved ones who have worked with the harmful material.
The theme of the day this year is “Good health and safety for all workers whoever they are.” The day will focus on inequalities in occupational health and the role unions play in narrowing the inequalities gap. The slogan for IWMD is “remember the dead, fight for the living.
We look forward to a time where people are no longer exposed to asbestos and we can finally say that asbestos is a thing of the past.
