Despite the advances in safety science and workplace security since the Industrial Revolution, the majority of blue-collar workers in the U.S. continue to be threatened with injuries and/or death every workday. The numbers are staggering. Over 2,800,000 work-related injuries were reported in 2017, over 5,100 employees died on the job, and 458 were murdered at their place of employment.
High Incidence of Workplace Injury and Death Continues
OSHA states that workplace deaths decreased from an average of 38 per day in the 1970s to an average of 12 per day in 2012. This is still an unacceptably high figure, considering that proper safety training, equipment, and competent oversight could prevent nearly all of the deaths and injuries.
