Remembering Those Who Have Died on the Job

Today is Workers' Memorial Day. Each day in the U.S., 12 people go to work but don't return home. Today offers a time to reflect on those lives cut short by workplace tragedy and to consider the long-term consequences felt by their families and in their communities. Workers' Memorial Day is also a time for OSH professionals to remind employers around the country of the need to identify and eliminate the risks that lead to workplace fatalities. "As long as there have been working men and women, there have been workers who have paid with their lives," says ASSE President Trish Ennis, CSP, ARM. "As OSH professionals, we must redouble our efforts to make workplaces as safe from injury and illness as possible. Too many have died, and continue to die, for us, the guardians of occupational safety and health, to do any less."

To commemorate the day, OSHA has posted a video public service message and several groups in the greater Cleveland, OH, area collaborated on another. As Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson says, "Join the movement, not just for this one day, but for everyday."
