About the 2023 Dirty Dozen Report

On April 26, 2023, National COSH announced “The Dirty Dozen” employers of 2023, highlighting companies that put workers and communities at grave risk due to unsafe practices which lead to preventable illnesses, injuries and deaths.   Many Dirty Dozen employers also engaged in harassment and retaliation against workers who are standing up and speaking out for safety on the job.

The 2023 Dirty Dozen  is released in observance of  Workers’ Memorial Week, honoring workers who lost their lives or suffered workplace injuries and illnesses – and as a call to action for safe, just conditions for all workers.

At a report release event on April 26, impacted workers and family members spoke about the toll of unsafe conditions on workers, families and entire communities:

Over 5,000 people are killed on the job every year
More than 95,000 people die from illnesses contracted at work every year
