North Lincolnshire Council will host a ceremony to commemorate Workers’ Memorial Day on Friday 27 April.
Workers’ Memorial Day is recognised both nationally and worldwide as a non-political event to remember people who have died at work or as a result of their job.
It is a day when employers, colleagues, friends and family come together to remember.
Cllr Keith Vickers, the Mayor of North Lincolnshire, will host a ceremony at 1.30pm in the council chamber at the Civic Centre in Ashby Road, Scunthorpe.
Members of the public are invited to attend the ceremony and lay flowers or a wreath to remember workers, colleagues and friends at a dedicated memorial area in Central Park.
A book of remembrance will be available for visitors to sign.
Please call the civic office on 01724 296346 if you would like to attend.
Cllr Keith Vickers, Mayor of North Lincolnshire, said:
“This year marks the second anniversary of the UK’s official recognition of Workers’ Memorial Day.
“It gives us the opportunity to commemorate the thousands of people who have died, been injured or made ill through their work.
“Remembering them can help lead to improvements in workplace health and safety and prevent further work-related tragedies in the future.”
