Mourn for the Dead, Fight for the Living 


While everyone is looking forward to spring and the warmer weather that
comes with it, MassCOSH <http://drupal.masscosh.org/>  recognizes that yet
another year has passed. And although we've made great strides toward
ensuring that all jobs are safe and healthy, sadly we must remember and
commemorate those who were injured and who lost their lives while at work in


Please join us on Tuesday, April 29 at the
<http://drupal.masscosh.org/node/100>  Massachusetts State House, 24 Beacon
Street in Boston. At 12:00 noon we will gather outside, on the stairs, for a
special Workers' Memorial Day Ceremony to honor Massachusetts workers who
lost their lives in 2007 and the beginning of 2008. MassCOSH will also host
a special commemorative breakfast in Room 511 of the State House at 10:30am
specifically for families that have lost a loved one due to a workplace


At the event a special report, Dying
<http://drupal.masscosh.org/files/DyingForWorkInMass_Report_2007_0.pdf>  for
Work in Massachusetts, will be released, highlighting that fact that workers
continue to be killed and maimed on the job in record numbers.  MassCOSH is
collecting stories of workers who were injured or killed on the job to share
in the report and at the event. If you have questions or would like to
submit a short story about your loved one and the workplace incident that
s/he was involved in, please contact Whitney Soenksen at
whitney.soenksen at masscosh.org or 617-825-7233 x14
