No matter where you work, there is always an occupational hazard and it is crucial for employers to cultivate and manage a safe work environment for their employees. Not only is workplace safety required by law, but it is also a moral responsibility. As an employer, you can promote a safe workplace by welcoming an occupational health expert to evaluate your environment and offer recommendations, providing your employees with regular health screenings, and being receptive to your employees’ safety concerns. As an employee, be sure to know your safety rights, share your knowledge with your peers, and bring any safety hazards or concerns to the attention of your employers.
Some Jobs Require More Safety Awareness Than Others
Being in the pipeline, energy, construction, and forestry industries significantly increase the likelihood of injuries and accidents. According to The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the construction industry, specifically, has a higher injury and accident rate than any other industry in America. To give you more perspective, in the year 2016, 21.1% of all worker fatalities occurred in the construction industry.
