Ceremony and safety reminder Apr. 28 in Baton Rouge
More than 4,000 American workers die on the job each year - about 10 work-related deaths every day - and another 4 million employees are injured or become sick at work. In Louisiana alone there are about 25 work-related fatalities each year.
Workers' Memorial Day is held on Friday, April 28 to honor those fallen workers and refocus workplace safety efforts to spare other families from similar tragedy. A remembrance ceremony will be held 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on the steps of the Louisiana State Capitol in Baton Rouge.
