INMO Hold Minute Silence to Mark Workers Memorial Day
Press Release 27.04.18

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) has held a minute silence to mark Workers’ Memorial Day 2018. In 2017 alone 47 workers were killed in their workplaces in Ireland. Workers’ Memorial Day is an annual day of remembrance and action for workers killed, disabled and injured during work. It is an important day for trade unions who struggle to improve conditions for workers worldwide. It is also a time to reflect on how far we still have to go and the steps we must take to protect the lives of future generations of workers.

The INMO constantly stresses the importance of safe workplaces for both staff and the patients they care for. Making all workplaces safe requires that workers are informed, consulted and allowed to take part in discussions on all questions relating to occupational health and safety. 

INMO have recently secured a nominated ED Safety Rep in each acute hospital as part of the recent ED National Agreement. This ensures that INMO members will always be represented on all health and safety decision making processes affecting their workplaces. This arrangement not only ensures staff safety, but also the safety of the patients who they care for. 
Today, on International Workers Memorial Day - 28 April, we remember those killed by work and rededicate ourselves to fight for safer workplaces.
