April 28 is National Day of Mourning

4/25/19 1:14 PM

A joint safety message to everyone

Sunday, April 28 is National Day of Mourning. Across Canada, it’s a day to remember those who were killed or seriously injured in the workplace.

On Sunday, flags at the TTC will be lowered to half-mast as a solemn tribute to those in our workforce who have died or suffered a serious injury or illness.

Whether you are at work or at home on the 28th, we ask that you take a personal moment to honour their memory, and to think deeply about the families who bear the pain of these tragedies.

Our commitment to a safe and secure workplace for our people, and a safe service to the public, is what drives our success. Make every effort to work safely.

It is our privilege to acknowledge and thank everyone who participates in our Joint Health and Safety Committees. JHSCs are made up of dedicated management and worker representatives. These groups are an integral part of the TTC’s internal responsibility system, allowing union and non-union employees to work collaboratively to resolve health and safety concerns, which leads to an enhanced workplace for all.

We are steadfast in our mission to provide safe, reliable and courteous service to our customers and to the community in which we serve. At the core of it all is workplace safety.
