Huntington Beach, CA, April 28th, 2021
Each year, April 28th is recognized as Workers' Memorial Day in the United States. It also happens to be the same day that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was established back in 1971. Workers’ Memorial Day is a time to honor and remember the workers who have been killed, disabled, injured, or made unwell by their work, and to acknowledge the grievous suffering experienced by families and communities, and to recommit ourselves to the fight for a safe and healthy workplace for all workers, according to OSHA.
Workers' health and safety are critical as there are thousands of fatalities on the job each year in the United States and millions more are injured. In last year’s proclamation from the California Governor recognizing Workers’ Memorial Day, he stated that as recently as 2018, 422 workers in the state had lost their life due to work-related accidents and illnesses.
“With 19 million workers in California, industrial hygiene (IH) testing and consulting services are a key component for employees in countless occupations,” said Joseph Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at LA Testing. "At LA Testing, our network of laboratories throughout the state has a long history of supporting the industrial hygiene and safety communities. Our laboratories provide a wide range of IH and environmental testing services, sampling supplies, monitoring instruments, and personal protective equipment (PPE). The laboratory services, sampling equipment, and expertise allow EMSL to assist in the safety of workers, and the public and are also essential for keeping companies and institutions in compliance with Cal/OSHA and other regulatory agencies.”
