Workers' Memorial Day
— honors lives lost on the job —Every year, more than 4,000 workers die on the job and nearly four million workers are injured or made sick at work. Workers' Memorial Day is held on April 28 to honor those workers and renew the commitment to protect the safety and health of all workers. Regional OSHA offices, worker organizations, and individuals affected by these tragedies will hold events to honor workers across the country.

National Fall Prevention Stand-Down
Falls remain the leading cause of death in the construction industry and lack of proper fall protection is still OSHA's most frequently cited violation. To raise awareness of fall hazards, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the Center for Construction Research and Training will hold the fourth annual National Safety Stand-Down May 8-12. The weeklong event encourages employers to pause during their workday for topic discussions, safety demonstrations, and trainings in hazard recognition and fall prevention. In Washington, D.C., two prominent construction venues – at the mile-long waterfront development known as the Wharf, and the Capitol Riverfront area near Navy Yard – will participate with large-scale stand-downs in the week leading up to the official stand-down. For more information, see the event webpage.
