No one should have to experience the pain and heartache of a loved one killed on the job. Please accept my sincerest sympathies for your loss.
On July 27, 2005, my husband was tragically killed at work. Since that time my family and I have met many other families who have been forever impacted by a work place tragedy. Inspired by our loss and the loss of hundreds of other families each year, my three children and I have become active volunteers with the Massachusetts Coalition for Occupational Safety and Health (MassCOSH), one of 22 non profit groups which make up the National COSH Network.
I hope you find the information in this guide helpful during this difficult time. These documents and materials were hard for me to find at the time of my husband’s death, but since MassCOSH has compiled it I have referenced it many times.
If you have any questions regarding family rights after a workplace incident, contact a local COSH or National COSH.
With deepest sympathy,
