Description

Each year thousands of workers are killed and millions more injured
or diseased because of their jobs.

Please join us on Worker Memorial Day to honor those who died in
2018 from a work-related injury or illness in King County. This special
ceremony will raise awareness about how we can strengthen our
commitment to make jobs safer and save lives in Washington State.

Keynote Speaker: Gary Franklin, "Reversing the Adverse Impact of Opioids on Injured Workers"

Medical Director, Washington State Department of Labor and Industries
Research Professor, DEOHS and Department of Medicine, and Adjunct
