OSHA to Co-Host Two Workers' Memorial Day Events

The two events will be held in Springfield, Mo. and Kansas City, Mo.

OSHA's Kansas City Area Office will be co-hosting two Workers' Memorial Day events this year to remember people who have been injured or killed on the job. The two events will be held on April 25 at 1 p.m. in Springfield, Mo. and on April 28 at 10 a.m. in North Kansas City, Mo. The events will be open to the public and the media.

The event on April 28 will feature a video tribute to workers who have died on the job, as well as a visit from Kansas City Mayor Sly James and Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon. Marcia Drumm, OSHA's acting regional administrator in Kansas City, will speak on behalf of OSHA. This event is co-hosted by OSHA, the Missouri Division of Labor Standards, and The Builders' Association.

"Workers' Memorial Day is held annually to remember those who have lost their lives on the job. Every day in America, on average, 12 people go to work and never come home, and each year nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover," said Drumm in OSHA's news release. "Since OSHA's founding, common-sense standards and strong and fair enforcement have saved thousands of lives and prevented countless injuries. OSHA is committed to educating employers and workers about preventing injuries and illnesses and keeping workers safe on the job."
