NSC Says Workplaces Have Highest Number of Unintentional Deaths Since 2008

The agency has called for a renewed dedication to occupational safety

According to a news release from the NSC, unintentional injuries in the workplace have reached their highest level since 2008. The agency defines unintentional injuries as falls, motor vehicle crashes and exposure to chemicals or other harmful substances. The analysis comes before Worker’s Memorial Day on April 28.

“Every single worker should make it home, safe and sound, to their family every night,” said John Dony, director of the Campbell Institute and EHS and Sustainability at the National Safety Council. “Clearly we are not doing enough to ensure that happens. On Worker’s Memorial Day we need to remember those we have lost and renew our commitment to safety so we can save lives and reverse this trend.”

The agriculture, forestry and fishing industries saw an 18 percent rise in unintentional injuries, as did the mining industry.
