OSHA Recognizes Workers' Memorial Day
Renews commitment to making safety a priority

ATLANTA - The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration will recognize Workers' Memorial Day on April 28 at 3 p.m. CDT by participating in a memorial at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 429 in Nashville, Tennessee.

American workers are the backbone of our nation's prosperity and a focal point of President Trump's "America First" agenda. With the recent increased growth in manufacturing, mining and construction industries, OSHA renews its commitment to making safety a priority through education, training and collaboration with American workers, businesses and state partners.

During the event, OSHA will partner with the Central Labor Council of Nashville and Middle Tennessee and the AFL-CIO to light a candle and read the name of each worker who died as a result of workplace injuries in Tennessee in 2016.

For more information, visit OSHA's Workers' Memorial Day webpage. All local events are free and open to the public. You can also learn more about OSHA by visiting http://www.osha.gov.
