Be The Change
It’s Never Me
Three today but that’s not me
No need to worry, it’s never me
They should do more, can’t they see
Even I know that and it’s never me
If it’s going to stop it will be by we
It can’t just be them; this includes me
Be the change we hope to see
Even I know that; I’m part of we
There isn’t a week that goes by that I don’t hear the shock expressed when I share that today, in Canada, three workers will be killed on the job or die as a result of occupational disease. As reported by the Association of Workers Compensation Boards of Canada, 17,167 workers lost their lives between the years 2000 and 2017 in Canada.
At Threads of Life our vision is to lead and inspire a culture shift, as a result of which work-related injuries, illnesses and deaths are morally, socially and economically unacceptable.
For this culture shift to occur we need to collectively do our parts to, “be the change.” Not only does this include employers, employees, unions, government, compensation boards and safety system organizations, it requires much broader engagement. Individuals, families, the media, our educational institutions and our communities as a whole have critical roles to play to achieve this culture shift.
I thank those individuals and organizations that are leading and inspiring a healthy and safe workplace culture. Thank-you for supporting Threads of Life and the families we serve. Together we are achieving Threads of Life vision:
To lead and inspire a culture shift, as a result of which work-related injuries, illnesses and deaths are morally, socially and economically unacceptable.
