Candlelight vigils to remember workers killed by Covid-19 – March 11th, 2022

March 11th is the anniversary of when WHO declared the Covid-19 outbreak  a pandemic.

Thousands of workers have died because they have been exposed to infection at work and workers need employers to control the risks and Governments to provide the resources needed to protect workers and others in workplaces.

The Hazards Campaign encourages workers and their representatives to organise or attend events across the UK to remember all those workers who have died because of Covid-19 since the pandemic began.

Light candles, hold up pictures of work colleagues and loved ones who have died and invite people to say something about them.

Invite family members, workers, local trade unionists and politicians to support the event and remind them that workers are still facing risks in the workplace every day.

It should be going dark by about 6.00pm in March.  If people can’t or don’t want to attend an event they can to put a poster in their window or light a candle safely on their door step, and post a picture online using a hashtag.
