NSC Releases Statement on Workplace Injuries

Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

ITASCA, IL -- The National Safety Council is concerned with 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.

The National Safety Council offers resources to help employers improve their safety performance and keep their workers safe. These include an Opioids at Work Employer Toolkit, Fatigue at Work Employer Toolkit, Safe Driving Toolkit, Work to Zero initiative and NSC membership offerings, consulting services and employee perception surveys.
