Walking In Memory of My Dad
Each year, 1,000 workers will be fatally injured or die from a workplace injury or occupational disease. If today is an average working day in Canada, then three people will die on the job. That’s a staggering statistic and one my Dad is now a part of.
My family unfortunately now knows the tradegy and pain that comes along with a workplace fataility when my Dad, John Luyben, was killed at work on August 25th, 2018. A man who was my biggest supporter in health and safety.
Being a health and safety professional I've wanted to do this walk for years and should have to show my support to those affected. I have and will continue to work hard to ensure my workers work safe and go home to their families every day.
On April 27, 2019 I will proudly walk to show my support for every one who has had to endure this heart-breaking tragedy. I will be walking in Steps for Life - Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy to raise money for Threads of Life, an organization providing family support services for those most deeply affected by a workplace fatality, life-altering injury, or occupational disease. I am raising money because I want to help provide support services for families affected by a workplace tragedy.
