Randy Hope speaks to a gathering of municipal staff Friday at the Civic Centre as the municipality observed the Day of Mourning for workers killed or injured in workplace accidents.

More than two-dozen municipal employees gathered in the atrium of the Civic Centre Friday morning in observance of the Day of Mourning for workers killed or injured in workplace accidents.

Denise Lidster, manager of occupational safety for the municipality, was one of several speakers who stressed not only remembrance but continued vigilance in the workplace and at home.

Mayor Randy Hope, a member of the labour movement when the concept of a day of mourning was brought forward, said the need for safety, in education, training and attitude, remains as strong as ever.

The Day of Mourning is observed in more than 80 countries.
