Worker’s Memorial Day, the anniversary of the day OSHA went into effect, serves to remember those workers who lost their lives on the job.  This year, we especially honor those thousands of front-line workers who fell victim to COVID-19.  Learn what we can do to strengthen OSHA, and provide workers a stronger voice to ensure their well-being.
