I’m currently learning about this in my history class and it’s such a tragedy that this happened! No-one that died in this fire or survived this fire will be forgotten. – Alex Andrews, Lester, Alabama   14 Feb 2017

I saw a special on this and also did a 30 hr OSHA training several times through the years, where this and other tragedies occurred, but, this I can't imagine the feeling the ladies had.... ...jumping, just waiting to either suffocate or be burned alive...the only other choice was to jump, and many did....just Horrific!!!

This was a historic event that has changed the workplace over 100 years ago. This does however show that it often takes a tragedy for dramatic changes in society, it is unfortunate for it to often happen this way, with many young lives being lost. – I.M.I, St. Charles, Illinois   30 Jan 2017

This horrific event in a huge way was a ginormous benefit to the modern day American society. Without this accident and its negative outcomes then fire safety awareness might not have even happens and has prevented millions of deaths. Even so my thoughts and priers go out to the victims and the families. – d.A.F, IL   30 Jan 2017

Remember also the 1993 Zhili Toy Factory Fire, China’s greatest fire death toll since the initiation of the Open Door Policy and the establishment of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone in 1980. Fire safety measures must be installed. Always. – Jenny Chan, Hong Kong   30 Jan 2017

Given such a tragedy and the subsequent standards created almost 100 years ago and the progression of technology, I am saddened to have read that two major U.S. cities sweatshop percentages are over 60%. – JADP, Spring Hill, TN   27 Jan 2017

A very tragic event, that in the end supported new ways of law. These people may have died, but not in vein. Today we should reflect back on what happen, and make sure it never happens again. In conclusion, the people that died should be remembered, and never forgotten. For if it weren't for them, laws may never have changed, and you might have been the one in the fire. – E.H, NC   24 Jan 2017
