WORKERS’ MEMORIAL DAY RESOURCES AND MATERIALS

NEED IDEAS FOR AN ACTION? HERE ARE SOME TO GET YOU STARTED…

  • Organize visits elected officials to increase awareness about OSH related issues and to make an appeal for the enforcement of laws established to secure the right of workers to have a safe and healthy job. Further, encourage elected officials to motivate creation of new laws to prevent injuries, illness and death on the job. 
  • Motivate your school, college, university, union, organization, etc., to hold awareness-building events with students, workers and the community. We encourage these events to focus on a commitment or goal that would help increase the health and safety of workers on the job: a training, an awareness session, an informative talk, a talking circle, and more. 
  • Another way to expose the dangerous and hazardous conditions that workers is to increase media coverage on OSH related issues. Contact your local newspaper, community radio and TV station to highlight the urgent need to improve working conditions in your region. Your organization, school, college or union could also write an article or blog and featured it on their website or newsletter and promote it on the various social networks.
  • Another idea is for organizations and entities to create banners with a message related to Workers’ Memorial Day. The banners can be safely hung at strategic places.
  • These are just some suggestions, but feel free to be creative!
