Every year, workers die while on the job. Workers’ Memorial Day, first established in 1971, is a way to honor those workers and remember the horrific grief of their families and friends. It’s also a good time to re-dedicate ourselves to fighting for safe workplaces and to put steps in place to prevent additional deaths. No profit margin is worth a human life.
Worker’s Memorial Day is observed every year on April 28. Each year, events are held across the country to remember workers who have died on the job and honor them by continuing to fight for improved worker safety.
On OSHA’s website, you’ll find a map where you can click on your location to find events near you.
