WYOMING'S FALLEN WORKERS
These are a few of the men and women that went to work in Wyoming and were fatally injured never going home to their families at the end of their shift. We remember, honor and recognize these men and women for their dedication and hardwork. We would like to sincerely thank the families that shared their loved one's picture and their tragic loss with USMWF.

Shirley was killed in August 2020 while working for Wyoming Department of Transportation/DOT in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She was fatally injured after she was struck by a sweeper, when it rolled down an incline backwards into her.
OSHA investigated the incident and proposed a proposed $0 penalty for two serious violations. This case is now closed.
