Workplace Violence

Remembering Workers Lost to Violence

Each year, hundreds of California workers are killed on the job, leaving behind families, workplaces, and communities forever changed by preventable tragedy. Join Worksafe and the UC Berkeley Labor Occupational Health Program (LOHP) on Friday, April 27th as we gather to observe Workers Memorial Day 2018.

This year, our event will highlight workplace violence – the second leading cause of death among California workers, and the leading cause of death for women at work. 

Attendees will hear from workers and advocates who are confronting workplace violence across sectors. Worksafe will also share information from our upcoming report, Dying at Work in California. We hope you will join us to mourn these workers, reflect on what's at stake, and recommit to another year of fierce worker justice activism. 

The event is free and lunch will be provided. Please register here to RSVP and learn more.
