Workers Memorial Day officially recognised

Workers' Memorial Day (subject of a previous posting on our blog about the consultation procedure) has been "officially" recognised by the UK government for the first time, joining 18 other countries to do so.
The government's response showed that the overwhelming majority of those consulted approved formal recognition.

28th April date was chosen for this day as it is the anniversary of the Occupational Health and Safety Act in the USA.
