When you go to work each morning, you don’t expect to get injured. Unfortunately the statistics show that work place accidents happen quite often. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2013 more than 3 million Americans suffered a work-related injury or illness, and 4,405 deaths were caused by workplace accidents.
Some workplaces are known to be dangerous, such as a construction site, a rail yard or a mining site. Employers are required at such sites to abide by specific safety regulations that protect against the hazards of these jobs. Yet all workplaces–from offices to school rooms to medical buildings–can be hazardous, especially if the site is not well-maintained, there is poor training, safety codes are not followed or employees are forced to work long shifts with insufficient breaks.
