Did you know?

There are a lot of facts floating around out there regarding workplace safety. Frankly, we find the startling.

For example, did you know that out of every 10 people you work with, eight of them will have suffered pain on the job. But, only three of those hurting people will actually say anything about it. Two of those people who do speak up have to because their injury requires immediate medical attention!

Want to hear some other interesting facts?

OSHA says that 4,609 workers were killed on the job in 2011 – that’s almost 90 people a week or nearly 13 deaths every day.

Our question is this: how do these workplaces get so dangerous in the first place?

“Every day in America, 13 people go to work and never come home. Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover. These are preventable tragedies that disable our workers, devastate our families, and damage our economy. American workers are not looking for a handout or a free lunch. They are looking for a good day’s pay for a hard day’s work. They just want to go to work, provide for their families, and get home in one piece.”
– Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, Workers Memorial Day speech April 26, 2012
