5 safety tips every employee should know

​June is National Safety Month in the United States--a time to focus on ways to reduce the causes of injuries at work and promote safety in the workplace. According to the National Safety Council, preventable work-related deaths totaled 4,414 in 2017 and have increased 17.5% in the last ten years.

Here’s another staggering statistic: A worker gets injured roughly every 7 seconds. That amounts to 510 workers per hour and 12,600 per day! In 2017, a total of 104 million production days were lost due to work-related injuries. The worst part is that each one of these injuries and deaths was preventable.
