The UW Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences (DEOHS) has organized a special seminar to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911. This tragic fire in New York City's garment district killed 146 workers and sparked a new era in regulation and labor activism focused on worker rights, health, and safety.

The special seminar will feature the past, present, and future of workplace health and safety. The seminar will be held Thursday, March 31, 4:00–6:00 p.m., UW's South Campus Center, Room 316. A reception will follow in Room 354 (Crow’s Nest).
