NEED IDEAS FOR AN ACTION? HERE ARE SOME TO GET YOU STARTED…

  • Hold a memorial breakfast, rally, or candlelight vigil to honor the dead and fight for the living
  • Visit your elected officials and tell them that safe work saves lives.
  • Hold a training, teach-in, informative talk, or discussion group at your school, workplace, or union about worker fatalities and how to make workplaces safer.
  • Write an op-ed or letter to the editor for your local paper, highlighting local workplace fatalities and prevention strategies.
  • Make a Workers' Memorial Week banner, and hang it where it can be widely seen!
  • Reach out to family members who lost loved ones; include their stories in public education programs.
  • These are just some suggestions, but feel free to be creative!
