If Your Family Has Been Impacted by a Workplace Fatality in Canada…
The John Petropoulos Memorial Fund would like to hear from you.
If you have lost a loved one to a workplace fatality in Canada – as the result of injury or occupational illness – you may be interested in a public awareness campaign we are currently working on, to raise awareness about the growing number of workplace fatalities.
The first phase of the “Casket” campaign has just been launched.
To view the first 30-second “Casket” PSA, please click here.
For the second part of the campaign, we are collecting photos from family members who have lost a loved one to a workplace fatality in Canada.
Please click here to view some of the photos we have received so far.
Here is the link for further details on the campaign, including the photo component of the project.
If you would like to participate in the photo project, please contact the JPMF’s “Casket” Project Family Liaison Coordinator, Rebecca Orr, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have extended the deadline to submit photos to Nov 15th, 2020.

About the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund
The JPMF was started shortly after the death of Calgary Police Constable John Petropoulos on Sept 29th, 2000. John was investigating a break and enter complaint when he stepped through a false ceiling, fell nine feet into the lunchroom below and died of a brain injury. There was no safety railing to warn him of the danger; the complaint turned out to be a false alarm.
John was 32.
The JPMF is a registered Canadian charity that raises public awareness about workplace safety issues and educates people about why & how to ensure their workplaces and the roads are safer for everyone, including emergency responders. For further information, please visit jpmf.ca.
