Young workers are more likely than other workers
to be hurt or killed on the job.

That’s what the statistics say. But the statistics can’t portray the stories of these young
lives interrupted, or of the overwhelming grief and chaos left behind.

The LifeQuilt is a unique and permanent memorial dedicated to the thousands of young
women and men between the ages of 14 and 24, who have been killed and injured on the job.
The quilt commemorates 100 young workers killed on the job with individual, personalized quilted blocks. One hundred injured young workers are recognized on the centre panel.
