Workers' Memorial Day
Time & Location
About The Event
Workers’ Memorial Day is a day of remembrance and mourning for workers who are killed or injured at work. Held each year on April 28, it is a day to remember those lost to or affected by a work-related death or injury.
The day was first observed in the United States in 1989. As well as a day to remember and mourn, it is a day to call attention to workplace safety issues and advocate for greater safety for everyone. The April 28th date commemorates the founding of OSHA in 1971.
Kids’ Chance sees first-hand the effect a worker’s death or injury can have on the entire family, especially the children. Finances can change rapidly. Plans for the future become unsure. Sending a child to college under these circumstances can be tough. A Kids’ Chance scholarship helps the children of workers achieve their educational goals and makes a brighter and more productive future possible.
