As we observe Workers’ Memorial Day, we’d like to share these Spanish language resources from National COSH, to help in remembering those who have become ill, injured or lost their lives at work.
This year, we are spotlighting employers who have failed to take proper steps to protect against the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, as well as other preventable hazards across a range of industries and occupations.
The Executive Summary of our Dirty Dozen 2020 — Special Coronavirus Edition report is available here:
The National COSH 2020 Dirty Dozen — Special Coronavirus Edition puts a spotlight on employers who put workers and communities at risk from unsafe practices. This year, we focus on employers who are failing to protect workers and the public from exposure to COVID-19, as well as other hazards across a range of industries and occupations.
Semana de lxs Trabajadores Fallecidxs es un buen momento para preguntar: “¿Están los empleadores haciendo lo suficiente para prevenir las muertes en el lugar de trabajo?” La mayoría de las lesiones y muertes en el trabajo se pueden prevenir cuando los trabajadores pueden hablar sobre los peligros sin castigo. Podemos hacer más de 5,100 muertes por trauma y más de 95,000 muertes por enfermedad ocupacional.
Thank you to the worker health and safety activist community for all the work going on around the world to remember those who were injured, made ill or killed on the job. This annual activity fuels our work to fight for more prevention programs to stop the daily physical and emotional toll that work has on so many workers.
Below are some links to specific information about workplace fatalities that may be helpful as we try to highlight specific recent fatality cases.
