For us, Every day is Workers' Memorial Day
Every 15 seconds, a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease, and 160 workers experience a work-related accident.

The day also serves as a potent reminder that most workplace deaths, injuries, and illnesses are preventable.
As licensed and certificated nursing professionals, we always remember the importance of both safety and prevention. That’s why we always have worked – and will continue to work – to make our facilities the safest possible for both ourselves and those we serve. We’ve made progress, but there is much more to do. Contact your chapter office to find out how you can get involved to help improve safety for those living and working at your facility.
