Municipality of the County of Inverness Recognizes National Day of Mourning

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 25th, 2019

INVERNESS COUNTY, N.S. – The National Day of Mourning, observed across Canada each year on April 28th, is an occasion to honour those who have lost their lives or suffered illness due to workplace-related injuries, hazards and accidents.

This year, the Municipality of the County of Inverness is asking all residents to take some time Sunday, April 28th, to remember victims of workplace accidents with a moment of silence at 11am. The Municipality also wishes to reaffirm its commitment to employees and their families that the health and safety of staff is always the first concern while they are at work.

“The National Day of Mourning is a day of reflection, but it’s also a day to contemplate workplace safety practices everywhere,” said Municipality CAO Keith MacDonald. “The Municipality’s team is always looking for ways to reduce or eliminate risk of accidents, wherever Municipality staff members are working.”

The Municipality of the County of Inverness wants residents to be confident that safety is a daily priority. To this end, the Municipality will host several engagement activities and learning opportunities for Municipal staff during this year’s North American Occupational Safety and Health Week from May 5th to 11th, 2019.
