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 3 million work-related injuries were reported last year, 4,585 employees died on the job last year, and 404 were murdered at their place of employment.
OSHA states that workplace deaths have 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 when considering that nearly all of the deaths and injuries could have been prevented with proper safety training, equipment, and competent oversight.
