Occasionally, someone says something about safety I find noteworthy. In honor of Workers Memorial Day on April 28, I’m highlighting a well-known but still poignant comment from a workers’ rights advocate.

“Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living.”

Mary Harris “Mother” Jones, a staunch workers’ rights advocate during a period of industrial growth in the 19th and early 20th centuries
