  Threads of Life

Forget Me Not is the first book ever published about families who have experienced a workplace tragedy (fatalities, life-altering injuries or occupational disease).

Why now?
On average, more than 1,000 Canadian workers die on the job each year (according to work-related fatality statistics published by Association of Workers' Compensation Boards of Canada). In addition, more than 260,000 others are injured at work. And behind every cold, hard, statistic is a family left to pick up the pieces.

Readers will:

· Hear lessons learned by survivors, tales of personal challenges, courage and inspiration

· Witness the honest, compelling testimony of workers and family members affected by workplace burns, crushing, contact with machinery, drowning, exposure to toxic substances, electrical contact, falls, motor vehicle incidents, trench collapse (suffocation), elevator fall and explosions.

· Learn facts about health and safety hazards across multiple workplace sectors, including construction, industrial workplaces, fisheries, agriculture, and forestry, through informative sidebars

· Develop a deeper understanding of the personal experience of grief, court proceedings, impact statements, drug addiction to pain killers, and other challenges common to families dealt a workplace tragedy
