Committee on Education and Labor Recognizes Workers Memorial Day

For all those who are discouraged and need recognition for their family member and their efforts I found this information on the Committee on Education and Labor Web Site.

Hearing on OSHA Standards Marks Workers Memorial Day

April 28 is Workers Memorial Day, a day dedicated by the labor movement to workers killed on the job and to the safety of living workers. Almost 16 workers are killed in accidents every day, and between 50,000 and 60,000 die each year from occupationally-related disease.

The Workforce Protections Subcommittee will hold a hearing on Tuesday, April 24, entitled "Have OSHA Standards Kept Up With Workplace Hazards?"

Subcommittee on Workforce Protections

Hearing on "Have OSHA Standards Kept up with Workplace Hazards?" scheduled at 1:30 p.m. in room 2175 Rayburn House Office Building. Witnesses to be announced.

How wonderful is this! Not only recognition but efforts in making a difference.
