Beyond Names and Numbers

Forty-four Oregonians lost their lives on the job and in war this past year.

Many of us fill our days doing what we can to make workplaces safer. But the reality is, it hasn’t been enough. In our small state, forty-four people from all walks of life went to work and didn’t return home. As shared at today’s Workers Memorial Day Service in Salem, each name, each number, represents a real person, with a real story, with loved ones who miss them.

Today, let us re-dedicate ourselves to more. To reach zero and a nameless list. Share this message with your coworkers, your friends, your communities, and your families.
