More Info →Workers' memorial signage at Memorial Park, Palmerston North

A new sign was created by the Palmerston North City Council, for the workers's memorial at Memorial Park on Napier Road, Palmerston North. It was installed on 6 April 2018, and is to be launched on Workers' Memorial Day on 28 April. The sign discusses the former use of Memorial Park as a gravel pit, providing ballast for the railway, and worker who lost his life at the pit, and the importance of worker safety. There is an annual commemoration each year on 28 April. Its purpose is to challenge New Zealanders to see workplace health and safety as a crucial issue.
