National Day of Mourning 2017

The National Day of Mourning is not only a day to remember and honour those lives lost or injured due to a workplace tragedy, but also a day to renew the commitment to improve health and safety in the workplace and prevent further injuries, illnesses and deaths.

The most recent statistics from the Association of Workers' Compensation Boards of Canada (AWCBC) tell us that in 2015, 852 workplace deaths were recorded in Canada. Among those dead were four young workers aged 15 to 19 years old; and another 11 workers aged 20 to 24 years old.

At Bird we recognize that the creation of a workplace culture in which we are all committed to ensuring that everyone goes home at the end of the day just as healthy as when they arrived is critical to our success. It is how we work.

All across the company we ask that you take a moment of silent reflection to think about the impact to the lives of you or your loved ones if suddenly, tragically, one of you didn’t return home from work one day. Then take another moment to think about what you can do to help ensure that never happens. Then, commit to it.

Thank you.
