WorkSafeBC video introduced during first Day of Mourning in high schools across BC


On April 28, 2016 the Day of Mourning remembrance was introduced for the first time to more than 100 high schools across BC. WorkSafeBC supported this remembrance with a variety of resources – including a new 8 minute video called The Matthew Bowcott Story.

Matthew was just 19 when he was badly injured in a restaurant kitchen. The video is a true story about a young worker’s injury and his road to recovery. It contains some graphic images.

Matthew’s personal story is a testament to every worker’s right to know the hazards, to speak up about safety concerns, and to refuse unsafe work.
