Candle Light Vigil

April 28, 2020

 

Each year, more than 4,600 women and men die as a result of work-related accidents and diseases in the United States. Workers suffer approximately 4 million occupational injuries and illnesses each year.  Worldwide we lose one worker every 15 seconds and in the United States approximately 12 to 15 workers die every day due to preventable incidents.

 

Please join us as we remember those lost to work-related accidents every year on April 28th!

Please make sure and plan to join us on Tuesday, April 28, 2020!

At 11am on the 2nd Floor Rotunda of the State Capitol!
