Radio Labour podcast features Canadian origins of the International Day of Mourning

Most people think International Health and Safety Day was started by a government or maybe the United Nations. Not so. It was started by a little health and safety committee in Canada in 1984. Observance of the day has spread to more than 60 countries.

RadioLabour has prepared a special programme about International Health and Safety Day. It features an interview with Anthony Pizzino, the Director of Research and Health and Safety for the Canadian Union of Public Employees.

The program also includes one of the best health and safety songs ever produced: "We Just Come to Work Here - We Don't Come to Die" by Harry Stampers.

The program is available here:
