Workers' Memorial Day
Each year we observe Workers' Memorial Day in order to remember the workers who suffered injuries, became ill, or were killed on the job, as well as to promote legislative action and stronger enforcement of existing health and safety laws. It's also a day in which we rededicate ourselves to the effort to create safer & healthier workplaces for all workers.
