1994 In Memorium

WisCOSH has identified the following on-the-job deaths in Wisconsin during 1994. Many deaths go unreported, particularly those due to occupational illnesses. The following workers were identified with the help of various sources, including the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Worker's Compensation Division of the State of Wisconsin.

If you have lost a loved one to occupational illness or a death in the workplace and are looking for some help figuring out what to do and who to contact the United Support and Memorial for Workplace Fatalities may be of help. This web site is run by a woman, and her family, who lost her brother to a workplace fatality. They provide support, awareness, tributes, memorials, article, self-help, workers comp. laws, wrongful death attorneys and safety resources. And most of all they care! They listen!
