OSHA to Host Virtual Workers Memorial Day on April 28


The virtual event, streaming on YouTube, will honor working people who lost their lives on the job.

The Occupational Health & Safety Administration is honoring those who lost their lives while on the job and recognizing the impact these tragic losses have on families, co-workers and communities during a live virtual event on April 28 for Workers Memorial Day.

This year, the agency will also recognize that, more than a year into the pandemic, every day essential workers have put their lives on the line during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

"Many were sickened or died as a result of just going to work—for simply doing what they had to do to support their families. They were healthcare workers, grocery workers, meatpackers, nurses, delivery drivers, farmworkers, law enforcement officers, teachers, and sanitation workers," the agency said on their website. "We remember and honor every worker who has lost their life to largely preventable fatal injuries and illnesses, and we commit ourselves to fighting to make sure that others do not suffer the same terrible fate."

Those interested in tuning in for the Department of Labor's Workers Memorial Day Program will need to tune in to the department's YouTube page at 2:00 PM ET.

In addition to the Workers Memorial Day event being held by OSHA, there are several states also holding their own events. You can view the list of events at this link.
