Since 1971, there has been a designated a day of remembrance to commemorate workers’ lives lost due to tragic workplace accidents and occupational diseases. Worker’s Memorial Day, observed on April 28th is a time to promote safety and healthy working conditions for all employees nationally and to honor those who have died as a result of a workplace or occupational illnesses such as mesothelioma. Moreover, the national day of recognition is used as an opportunity to increase public awareness and promote prevention against future work accidents and occupational diseases related to toxins including asbestos exposure.
Many American workers die each year from long-term occupational illnesses such as mesothelioma and other cancers linked to asbestos exposure. Often the exposure occurred decades ago and symptoms remain latent for years. Many of the trades at risk include machinists, mechanics, pipefitters and other factory or industrial workers that came in direct contact to the popular building material.
