Workers’ Memorial Day

Posted by:

It’s estimated that 4,600 people die annually from a workplace fatality in the U.S. Globally, 6,300 people die every day because of occupational accidents or work-related diseases – more than 2.3 million deaths per year, according to the International Labour Organization.  
The 38,439 members of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) have dedicated their lives to helping reduce injuries and save lives. Workers’ Memorial Day, April 28, is a painful reminder of how much the safety community, business leaders and workers need to work together to improve the safety of every workplace in America and across the globe.
The ASSE Foundation’s Family Scholarship Fund supports families who have lost a loved one in a workplace incident. Join ASSE in fulfilling the wishes of these families to see their child or spouse achieve their educational goals by donating today to theFamily Scholarship Fund.
If you know of any family who may benefit from this scholarship, please ask them to visit our website for more information.
