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 30 at 2 p.m. EDT by participating in a ceremony in Atlanta.
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.
OSHA will partner with the Atlanta North Georgia Labor Council for a Workers' Memorial Day ceremony at Reverend James Orange Park at Oakland City Park to read the names of workers who have been injured or lost their lives in the workplace in 2016 and 2017.
