WHAT: Workers Memorial Day recognizes the thousands of U.S. workers who die each year on the job, and the more than 1 million people in the United States who are injured each year while at work. The observance is typically held on April 28 because on that date in 1970, Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act.

WHEN: Thursday, April 26, at noon
