“No quiero que haya otra historia como la mía.” (I don’t want there to be another story like mine,”) explains Adriana Martinez, whose 29 year old husband was killed in 2009 at a construction project in Houston, Texas. Martinez shares her story in the 5-minute video, “My husband Orestes Martinez: Died at an unsafe workplace.” The video, in English with Spanish subtitles, includes several written questions to encourage discussion at safety trainings, staff meetings or other events.

Another 5-minute video, “My son Dirk Remington: Died at an unsafe workplace,” features Dale Remington, whose 46 year-old son was killed while repairing a radio/cell tower in upstate New York.
