City of Burlington is committed to employee health and safety

Flags at Burlington’s City Hall will be lowered to half-mast to honour the National
Day of Mourning, on April 28. The annual Day of Mourning is dedicated to
remembering those who have lost their lives or suffered injury or illness on
the job or due to a work-related incident.

The National Day of Mourning is also a day to renew the commitment to improve
health and safety in the workplace and prevent injuries, illnesses and deaths.
The City of Burlington is participating in the Day of Mourning as an opportunity
to honour the memory of all workers, nationwide, who have lost their lives or
have been injured at work. 

The city’s commitment includes continuing to assess and working to remove
occupational health and safety risks and developing corporate health and safety
standards and safe job procedures, with the goal of preventing workplace
injuries and illnesses.
