USMWF is always looking for individuals and groups to help us gain awareness about workplace fatalities and injuries and offer support to family members across the United States. We have a wide range of activities such as speaking, writing letters, helping with events, hosting events and much more. We already have some Wonderful Volunteers. 


USMWF is still looking for representatives in each state ready to make a difference and make workplaces safer for all as we truly could not reach our mission without the help and dedication from family members and friends such as yourself. For more information please contact Tonya Ford at


USMWF's National Safety Awareness Conference:
WHEN: April 28, 2020 
LOCATION: via ZOOM Video Conference

Family Voices

  • As young children in preschool or even as a toddler we learn consequences. If a teacher does not do their best to keep the students in their class safe and learning parents and even state officials step in and change policies. Why is it as adults in a workplace our employers not made to keep their workers safe. They can be as simple as protective equipment or extensive training on regulations.

    – Nicole Holmes Boone
  • I lost my brother simply because fixing a dangerous boiler was in CVR's 5 year plan. Yet that boiler had been in operation since 1959. We lost a great man because they didn't want to spend the money to fix it. There should be no acceptable risk in the workplace. Russell Mann 1967-2012.
    – Genevia Mann-Haley
  • When I lost my son, Zach in 2013 I was contacted by Mr. Wally and told about USMWF. The people are wonderful and understand what you are going through. Through them I have talked to and stay in touch with other families and they help and I hope I help as well. Thank you all!
    – Linda Clanton McCardle
  • Still have problems with the reality. After this happened I knew from experience where the investigation was going and the "penalties" as well. I am grateful for the work USMWF does and how Tammy and crew have provided support. DCS
    – Donald Coit Smith
  • Special thank to Tammy for all the times you took to listen to me. Want to share with Brittany will be graduating from college on Thursday. One of many milestones in life - bittersweet moment that her dad is not her to see but happy that life goes on. Those taken too soon will always be remembered forever more with their footprints left on our hearts.
    – Sharon Nichols
  • I can never say enough about how wonderful this organization is and how much I admire Tammy and her staff for this deeply meaningful service. On behalf of the National Association of Safety Professionals and its thousands of members I salute the USMWF.
    – Tom Hardin, President NASP
  • If nothing else USMWF opened my eyes. Of course I knew people died on the job. What I didn't know until my husband Doug died and I joined the ranks is how many. I honestly had no idea. To also have someone who shared my outrage that the news of Doug's accident was somehow kept out of the papers and off the news. Shared in my frustration at how the employer can reduce the fines imposed by OSHA. And understood my anger about the number of times employers are permitted to appeal. It's nice to have someone who listens and understands. It still breaks my heart how the size of this group grows daily and the continued lack of regard for safety companies continue to have.
    – Tina Tout
  • USMWF has helped me get through a tough time. I lost my son's father/ex husband, and USMWF showed me that I wasn't alone. I love how every year they light up the page during Christmas to keep loved ones, lost in a work accident that could've been prevented, alive! I've also met some great people!
    – Michelle Dunn
