In Remembrance

This virtual Workers Memorial Wall is in honor and recognition to those who lost their lives while on the job. In addition to injuries or incidents there have been many lives lost due to occupational illnesses and diseases in the U.S. They are family members — spouses, children, siblings, grandparents, friends, and coworkers — and we recognize them and all our fallen workers on this page.

We value all our fallen workers and offer their families our support, compassion and appreciation.

This page was developed in partnership with the United Support & Memorial for Workplace Fatalities (USMWF). If you have lost a loved one due to a work-related incident, we invite you to share his/her photograph with OSHA at remembrance@dol.gov as we will recognize him/her on our virtual Workers Memorial Wall.
