Labor Department Announces “Workers Memorial Day“ Events

The agency is hosting events to commemorate workers fatally injured on the job.

President Joe Biden’s administration will observe Workers Memorial Day on April 28, and the Department of Labor is commemorating the lives lost due to fatal work incidents in the days leading up to it. The Labor Department will also host Workers Memorial Day events in Washington, D.C., from April 22 to 25. 

In 2022, 5,486 workers suffered fatal injuries on the job, causing advocates to highlight the need for increased workplace safety.

“As we honor our fallen workers on Workers Memorial Day, we must remember that behind each workplace fatality there are loved ones enduring unimaginable grief,” said Assistant Secretary for Occupational Safety and Health Doug Parker. “It is for the lost workers and those left behind that we continue to fight for every worker’s right to a safe working environment.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Assistant Secretary Parker to seek God’s direction as he oversees OSHA.
  • For Acting Secretary Julie Su to be discerning as she heads the Labor Department.
  • For the Lord’s comfort for those who have lost loved ones on the job.
