Annual walk makes health and safety personal
PEACE REGION/GRANDE PRAIRIE, APRIL 10, 2017 – Deaths and injuries in the workplace happen across Canada every single day. They happen in this community too. The annual Steps for Life – Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy event is a chance to put a face to workplace tragedy, and offers people a way to support these families and improve health and safety.
On average in Canada, three people die every working day as a result of work-related traumatic injuries or occupational disease. Each of these tragedies will cause ripples of grief and chaos reaching beyond the family to friends, co-workers and community.
“Steps for Life is a great opportunity for us not only to raise money to help people who are coping with these terrible tragedies, but also for the community just to show that we care,” says Nicole Lazaruk, who leads the organizing committee for the Peace Region-Grande Prairie Steps for Life walk.
Steps for Life is a five-kilometre walk which serves as the premier fundraiser for Threads of Life, a national charity which supports families affected by workplace tragedy. Thirty walks will take place across Canada this spring. The Peace Region/Grande Prairie event takes place on Saturday, May 6th at Muskoseepi Park. Registration opens at 10:00 AM; and the walk kicks off at approximately 11:00 AM.
In addition to those personally affected by fatalities, serious injuries and occupational disease, Steps for Life includes local companies which raise pledges and enter teams, in order to demonstrate their commitment to health and safety.
