Each year, thousands of workers are killed and millions more are injured or diseased because of their jobs. In commemoration of Workers Memorial Day, MassCOSH will host a public event on the stairs of the State House in Boston to honor the Massachusetts workers who lost their lives in 2007 and the beginning of 2008.

At the event a special report, Dying for Work in Massachusetts, will be released. The report highlights the fact that workers continue to be killed and maimed on the job in record numbers. We invite all family members and friends of workers who were killed or injured on the job to join us for this tribute to those we’ve lost so senselessly.

This event is free and open to the public.
