Economic Downturn Threatens Safer Jobs For Workers

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 non-profit organization is run by a woman and her family, who lost her brother to a workplace fatality along with many others who've also lost family and friends to workplace incidents. 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!
