Join MassCOSH for Workers' Memorial Day

Mourn for the Dead, Fight for the Living

While everyone is looking forward to spring and the warmer weather that comes with it, MassCOSH recognizes that yet another year has passed. And although we’ve made great strides toward ensuring that all jobs are safe and healthy, sadly we must remember and commemorate those who were injured and who lost their lives while at work in 2007.

Please join us on Tuesday, April 29 at the Massachusetts State House, 24 Beacon Street in Boston. At 12:00 noon we will gather outside, on the stairs, for a special Workers’ Memorial Day Ceremony to honor Massachusetts workers who lost their lives in 2007 and the
beginning of 2008. MassCOSH will also host a special commemorative
breakfast in Room 511 of the State House at 10:30am specifically for
families that have lost a loved one due to a workplace incident.

At the event a special report, Dying for Work in Massachusetts, will be released, highlighting that fact that workers continue to be killed and maimed on the job in record numbers.

MassCOSH is collecting stories of workers who were injured or killed on
the job to share in the report and at the event. If you would like to
submit a short story about your loved one and the workplace incident
that s/he was involved in, please click here.
