During these extraordinary times, when many Canadian families are being impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, we also remember and honour those colleagues, friends and family members who became ill, were injured or lost their lives in a workplace tragedy.

Annually, on April 28, Canadians mark the National Day of Mourning not only to remember, but also to renew a commitment to improving workplace health and safety, and to preventing further illnesses, injuries and deaths.

We also honour the many families and friends who have been deeply affected by these tragedies. The flags on Carleton’s campus will fly at half-mast, as will the Canadian flags on Parliament Hill and on all federal government buildings.

Join us in committing to improve health and safety at Carleton University.

Take a moment to look around you. Do you see one item that poses a hazard? Fix it or report it to your supervisor, the FMP Service Centre at ext. 3668, or through the CU WorkSafe.

Thank you for helping to make Carleton a safer place.
