WOODBRIDGE - Today marked Workers Memorial Day, a day to remember those who went to work and never came home.

Harry Laderman was killed in 1967 in a workplace accident. He was working as a toll collector near the Lincoln Tunnel when he was hit by a truck. Today, his children attended a Workers Memorial Day ceremony at the New Jersey Turnpike Authority headquarters in Woodbridge.

The event is held every year on this day because April 28 is the anniversary of the creation of OSHA, the federal agency that is responsible for improving safety at the work place.
