On April 28, 2022, Workers' Memorial Day the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and United Support and Memorial For Workplace Fatalities (USMWF) joined together to form an Alliance to promote an effective communication between OSHA and family members and loved one's of workplace fatality victims. We are collaborating together to raise awareness of workplace safety and health issues.
Through this Alliance together we will work on the following:
We thank OSHA for this opportunity and we look forward to working with you more in the future

OSHA Directive of Communicating with Families:
OSHA’s Directive: Communicating OSHA Fatality Inspection Procedures to a Victim’s Family (https://www.osha.gov/enforcement/directives/cpl-02-00-166)
USMWF was honored to collaborate with OSHA on a critical directive regarding communicating “OSHA Fatality Inspection Procedures to a Victim’s Family”. In April 2012 OSHA released the first directive CPL 02-00-153 which provides guidance to ensure the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) communicates its fatality inspection procedures to the victim’s family and facilitates the exchange of information throughout the inspection and settlement process, at no cost to the family. Previously, families may not even have known there was an inspection until it came out in the media. Considering how personal this is to families after a loss this was a milestone and truly helps family members receive the closure they deserve as it answers many questions they may have regarding their loss.

USMWF strives to honor, remember and recognize our fallen workers in multiple tributes through our "Faces Campaign Tribute" that was launched in January 1, 2009 and is intended to give workplace fatalities a face, honor our fallen workers, gain awareness and educate the public, workers, employees, organizations and our government.
USMWF is proud to announce that we have partnered with U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in also recognizing our fallen workers on their Workers' Memorial Day, "Remembrance" page.
