Workplace Injuries Show No Change From 2017 to 2018

The latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showing no change in the number of workplace injuries and illnesses between 2017 and 2018. This marks the first year since 2012 that the total recordable cases rate for workplace injuries and illnesses did not decline. Every employee deserves a safe work environment and to return home safely at the end of each work day.

Employers are responsible for ensuring the safety of all of their workers. This includes having policies and training in place to address the major causes of injuries and fatalities. Leadership should set the tone from the top and engage all workers in safety, continually looking to identify and mitigate workplace safety hazards and measuring safety performance to ensure continuous improvement.
