New York State Funeral Directors Association

August 10, 2018

NYSFDA has scheduled four OSHA teleconferences for funeral home owners and staff to comply with federal education requirements.

WHO MUST PARTICIPATE? All funeral home employees, trade people and other independent contractors who work in or around the embalming room, or directly with bodies, or the effects of the deceased must have this training.

David Murphy wasn’t expected to live after suffering life-changing injuries in a 2013 motorcycle accident.

Murphy was riding along a country road when an SUV ran a stop sign and hit him broadside.

The second-generation, Upstate-NY funeral director was airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester.

He survived.
