NorLand Limited Participates in National Day of Mourning Ceremony
NorLand Limited participated in a ceremony held at Vancouver's Hastings Park Centre Grounds today, the National Day of Mourning, to honour lives lost or injured at the workplace. Every year on April 28th, workers, families, employers, and communities across Canada come together at ceremonies held around each province to remember those who have lost their lives to work-related incidents or occupational disease, and to renew their commitment to creating healthy and safe workplaces.
As part of the National Day of Mourning, the Canadian flag is flown at half-mast from sunrise to sunset on all federal government buildings, including on Parliament Hill. Workers and employees observe this day in various ways including lighting candles, donning ribbons and black armbands, and observing a moment of silence at 1100 hrs. The purpose of Day of Mourning is twofold-to remember and honour those lives lost or injured and to renew the commitment to improving health and safety in the workplace -to prevent further deaths, injuries and diseases from work.
