Private industry employers report over three million workplace injuries and illnesses each year, which is an incident rate of about 3.3 cases per 100 full-time employees. Most of these incidents are occupational injuries, within industries that produce both goods and services.
There's no denying that on-the-job hazards can pose risks to workers in any industry at any time. Whether you work in a factory, school, hospital, or office, there are many things that you can do to reduce your risk of injury and sickness on the job.
