To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4745), to honor the working men and women who have died on the job, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
JOHN E. COURSON, for Committee.
TO HONOR THE WORKING MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE DIED ON THE JOB BY DECLARING APRIL 28, 1992, "WORKERS MEMORIAL DAY".
Whereas, the working men and women of South Carolina have helped to build this State and keep the state's economy strong; and
Whereas, many workers die with little attention each year while performing their jobs, others die as the result of occupational diseases contracted or aggravated on the job, and thousands more are disabled or injured on the job; and
Whereas, in fiscal year 1991, forty-seven workers died in South Carolina while working from causes as varied as electrocution, falls, and being struck by objects; and
Whereas, when these workers died they left behind families that had loved and depended on them; and
Whereas, while the need for strong safety and health protections, strong standards of enforcement, and fair and just compensation for such deaths and injuries continues, these fallen workers, and others before them, must not be forgotten. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That April 28, 1992, be commemorated as "Workers Memorial Day" in tribute to those workers who have lost their lives because of workplace injuries and illnesses.
