Workers memorial event to be held on Monday

BOSTON, Mass. (WWLP) – State workers who were killed or injured on the job in 2013 will be honored at a special workers memorial event.

Monday’s event at the state house will highlight some of the leading causes of death in the workplace, including falls, being crushed in machinery, or being struck by equipment.

The memorial is also meant to spotlight what critics say are relatively low fines assessed to employers hit with workplace safety violations.
