Workers’ Memorial Day commemorates those who died at work and to try and make it safer for the living, and to promote safer working conditions.

This date was chosen because it is the anniversary of the Occupational Health and Safety Act in the USA and commemorates the day of a construction accident in Connecticut that claimed 28 lives.
