Where do the most workplace injuries occur?

Are You At Risk?

According to the “Census Of Fatal Occupational Injuries,” there are approximately 4 deaths per 100,000 of the population, due to occupational injuries. Most of the fatal injuries occurred in the construction and transportation industries, or in workers over 55 years old. “Falls On The Same Level” was responsible for a number of these fatalities.

An interesting fact released by the “Census Of Fatal Occupational Injuries,” is the increase in employees being fatally injured from an object falling on them. Overall, the “Census” revealed that more than 90 percent of work-related injuries occur at private companies.

Based on this information, develop a plan to practice “Safety First!” if you are in an industry with a high level of workplace injuries.
