NSC Finds One Third of Workers Say Employers Emphasize Productivity over Safety

A survey was given to 2,000 employees in high-risk jobs

According to a press release, the NSC has released the results of a survey that indicate 33 percent of employees believe organizations prioritize productivity over safety, a percentage that was even higher in high-risk workplaces.

Sixty percent of respondents in the construction industry, for example, believe this sentiment to be true. The survey was given out as part of National Safety Month, and is based on the NSC’s employer perception surveys.

“Every employee deserves a safe workplace,” said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “While some of our findings were encouraging, others were a stark reminder of how far we still have to go to ensure safety is every employer’s highest priority.”
