Workers Memorial Day [WMD] is a commemoration day that is celebrated in the U.S and abroad each year on April 28th. It is meant to remember those who have been killed or left disabled as a result of an injury suffered at work. And, it’s an opportunity to recognize the preventable nature of most workplace accidents and bring greater awareness to safety campaigns and legislation.


So, you are more than welcome to read, review and use any of the content from our memorial page on your ME-P website.


Richard Nixon signed the Occupational Safety and Health Act, in 1970, which created OSHA to “assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and providing training, outreach, education and assistance.”

  1. On AWD

    The work environment for a physician, especially as an employee worker-bee, is clearly changing dramatically as there are increased demands for doctors to become more accountable to their employer masters.

    Thanks for this AWD.

  2. Hazardous Hospitals

    As part of the ongoing investigation into patient safety, ProPublica reporters Marshall Allen and Olga Pierce produced this interactive story in collaboration with PBS Frontline and Ocupop during a May 11-16 hackathon.

    A must see video.
