    • Obituary of Professor Yu Xinhua

      ObituaryofProfessorYuXinhua On 22 September 2014, we lost a great teacher, respected colleague and good friend, Assistant Professor Yu Xinhua, a  member of the Faculty of Law at North West University in Xian and an active member of the China ANROEV Network.  With heavy hearts, we mourn his loss and we convey our sincerest condolences to his family.

       We are devastated and heartbroken but we know that despite his untimely departure, his laughter, his tenacious belief in  the rule of law and his unwavering idealism will continue to serve as a beacon of light for us in the darkest of times.

       Even during his last moments as he was fighting this deadly illness, he did not stop working, and completed the translation  and publication of ‘The OSH Legal Resources Handbook’. We are filled with admiration for Professor Yu’s dedication to his  research, the passion for his work, and the compassion for the most vulnerable members of our society. His strength of character and the pride he took in his work will forever be an inspiration to us.

      Professor Yu was a man who lived by his words and ideals. In ‘The Meaning of Living’, the postscript to the OSH Legal Resources Handbook, he wrote:
      “One should not simply live, but one should seek to live a meaningful life. One should not simply live for oneself, but should live to help others find meaning in their lives. It is only in this way, that living becomes more than just life, and the true meaning of living can be realised.”ObituaryofProfessorYuXinhua_chart

      We believe that Professor Yu, in the 37 years he spent among us, did not simply live for himself. He truly lived a meaningful life.
      Teacher Yu’s legacy goes far beyond his contribution to the workers’ and victims’ movement in China. His research and publications on occupational injury law were valuable tools, which will continue to empower the occupational safety and health movement in Asia. His loss will be deeply felt by all who knew him.

      Within every student he has taught, or anyone who has had the privilege of working with him, Teacher Yu has awakened and instilled a sense of justice and integrity. His aspirations and dreams therefore live on in all of us. In his passing, a flame has been extinguished, but many more fires have been kindled.

      May Professor Yu rest in peace, and may his family find solace in his cherished memory.
