340 U.S. workers die each day from hazardous working conditions. In 2020, 4,764 working people were killed on the job and an estimated 120,000 died from occupational diseases. AFL-CIO. A person working at a workstation with heavy machinery.


Every day, 340 people die because of hazardous working conditions. When employers don’t keep our workplaces safe, it’s workers and our families who pay the price.

On Workers Memorial Day, we remember and mourn those we’ve lost.

And we recommit to our fight for a safe workplace for every worker. Because we know that workplace injuries, illnesses and deaths are preventable.

More than 50 years ago, the Occupational Safety and Health Act was passed, promising workers the right to a safe job.

However, our Death on the Job: The Toll of Neglect report shows how much work still needs to be done. So we will continue our fight.

Let’s create stronger job safety laws.

Let’s hold workplace safety agencies and employers accountable.

Let’s make sure every worker makes it home at the end of the day.

In Solidarity,

Team AFL-CIO
