“Dying at work in California: The hidden stories behind the numbers”
In 2011, we published the first of what has become an annual report on lives lost over the last year in California workplaces. This Workers Memorial Day, Worksafe will release the 4th annual "Dying at work in California" report in remembrance of the family members and friends behind the state’s workplace injury, illness and fatality statistics.
