Workers' Memorial Week 2016 featured over 100 events nationwide, as workers, unions, worker centers, activists and family members of the deceased came together to mourn the dead and fight for the living. Our blog shares highlights and pictures from the week and links to Workers' Memorial reports from National COSH, the AFL-CIO, Fe y Justicia, Knox Area Workers' Memorial Day Committee, MassCOSH, NYCOSH, South Florida COSH, and Workers Defense Project/Public Citizen.

New OSHA Recordkeeping Rule

Last week, OSHA announced the Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses final rule. This common-sense regulation is an important step towards transparency, and will help us learn more about how workers are hurt and become sick on the job. National COSH statement is here.

Local COSH Round-up

DIRTY & DANGEROUS: Commercial waste work is one of New York City's most dangerous jobs. In "Dirty and Dangerous," a new report from the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH), researchers found that commercial waste operations that routinely endanger workers may also endanger public health.

CELEBRATING 34 YEARS: You can RSVP now for Worksafe's Anniversary Celebration on June 2nd. The Gala in Berkeley, California will honor retiring Executive Director Gail Bateson, the Justice at Taylor Farms Campaign, and the Street Level Health Project.

PROTECTING VULNERABLE WORKERS: In Miami, South Florida COSH (a program of South Florida Interfaith Worker Justice), joined with allies to launch the Justice and Equality in the Workplace Program, a collaborative effort among U.S. government agencies, consulates of foreign governments, and U.S. community organizations to create safer workplaces for vulnerable workers in South Florida. The launch received extensive coverage in the Spanish-language press, which you can find at our COSH Network in the News page
