    "Working to Death - IAPA press release, Toronto
    Millions Die Each Year Due To Work-Related Accidents and Diseases
    April 28th Is National Day of Mourning and World Day For Safety and Health At Work

    Each year, an estimated two million men and women around the world die as a result of occupational injuries and work-related diseases. April 28, 2006 is the National Day of Mourning and the World Day for Safety and Health at Work, two occasions that honour workers across the country, and around the world, who have been injured, killed, or disabled on the job, or who suffer from occupational diseases. IAPA (Industrial Accident Prevention Association) asks employers and workers across Canada to make April 28th the day they renew their commitment to making occupational health and safety a real priority in the workplace.
