A powerful video on the history and importance of workers health and safety. Warning: it does contain some disturbing scences. Hat tip unison health and safety.
This year I am organising an event to mark Workers' Memorial Day at the statute in Three Mills Green in Stratford, London, E15.
|"Situated on Three Mills Green, entry from Bisson Road. The inscription says:|
Of your charity pray for the souls of Thomas Pickett, Godfrey Maule Nicholson, Frederick Eliott and Robert Underhill, who lost their lives in a well beneath this spot on 12 July 1901. The first named while in the execution of his duty was overcome by foul air. The three latter successively descending in heroic efforts to save their comrades shared the same death…This monument was erected in 2001 to replace the original which was 150 metres to the south. The statue shows one arm grasping another in a rescue attempt."
