The national Day of Mourning is observed in Canada on April 28th. Every year, on April 28th, workers, families, employers, and others come together at events held around the province to remember those who have lost their lives on the job, and to renew our commitment to creating safer workplaces. In 2023, 175 B.C. workers died from a workplace injury or disease. There were 82 fatalities due to traumatic injury and 93 fatalities due to occupational disease. Let us take this day to honor the memories of those who have been affected and recommit ourselves to creating safer workplaces for all.

Asbestos Awareness Week is an opportunity to provide awareness about the dangers of asbestos in the workplace.

Awareness: Asbestos was used as a building material until the early 1990s in BC and can be present in many areas of older buildings.

Risks: Asbestos exposure can cause serious health problems, including Asbestosis, Lung cancer, Mesothelioma (a cancer), and pleural thickening (a lung disease). Illnesses from asbestos can show up years later.

Who is at Risk: Workers may be exposed to asbestos while doing repairs, renovations, or demolishing older buildings in B.C. Workers with the highest risk of asbestos exposure include demolition and renovation contractors, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, building owners, home inspectors, insurance adjusters, and real estate agents.

Prevention and Action: If you suspect asbestos is present, stop work immediately and have a qualified asbestos professional complete an asbestos survey. If you have a work-related injury or illness, you may be entitled to compensation through WorkSafeBC.
