Workers' Memorial Day 2011
All staff are invited to attend a brief ceremony for Workers’ Memorial Day, which will be held at 12.30pm on Thursday 28 April on the lawn in front of the Edward Boyle library.
The ceremony is jointly led by the trade unions and the University and includes a minute's silence to remember all those across the world who have been killed, injured, or made ill through their work.
Workers' Memorial Day originated in Canada in 1984 and is now officially recognised in 19 countries. It is marked on 28 April each year by a host of activities including events, demonstrations, and vigils.
The ceremony at Leeds acknowledges the importance of ensuring good health and safety practices at work.
