New York State Funeral Directors Association

Not long after a near-fatal crash, second-generation funeral director David Murphy considered leaving the profession.

A severed spinal column, broken bones, organ injuries and temporary paralysis left him a bit less agile than he’d been before.

Today, after six years of recovery, Murphy can pick up and transport more bodies to funeral homes in one day than most funeral directors.

Funeral home guests generally leave with little more than memories, grief and any advice they receive from funeral professionals.

And they hope not to be returning soon.

But after the addition of a new feature at Nolan Funeral Home in Long Island, some may be leaving with a book and coming back to visit a week later.

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.
