The Association for Workplace Tragedy Family Support, known as Threads of Life, supports the healing journey of families who have suffered from a workplace fatality, traumatic life-altering injury, or occupational disease. In fact, Threads of Life currently supports more than 2,200 family members across Canada affected by workplace tragedies.

In order to do this, every year Threads of Life will host its flagship fundraiser – Steps for Life. A fun, 5km walk that aims to educate the community about the devastating ripple effects of each workplace tragedy and how we can work together to prevent others being injured or killed on the job.

These events are held across Canada in more than 30 locations. IHSA is hosting its own team at the Toronto walk on April 30.

If you would like to participate in or support a walk in your community, visit the Steps for Life website. You can also learn more about this initiative on the IHSA website.
