Every single day, at least one California worker is killed on the job.


Worksafe releases Dying at Work in California each April to bear witness to the human toll of unsafe and unhealthy work. The release coincides with Workers Memorial Day, an international day of remembrance for those who have been hurt and killed on the job.

Preventable workplace hazards harm thousands of California workers each year, and far too many of these incidents result in a worker's death. With this report, we remember the lives that have been lost, and we highlight opportunities for improving worker health and safety in California.

Thank you for reading and sharing Dying at Work in California. Thank you for bearing witness to the human impact of these preventable workplace tragedies.
