    Workplace Injuries & Illnesses
    2014 Report Summary

    Each year the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) publishes reports on employee reported workplace injuries and illnesses and resulting days away from work.  This is a summary of the findings from 2014, focusing on a small portion of the data that affect several of our clients across many industries. 

    Though situations are always variable, many of these types of reported injuries could be reduced or eliminated by reviewing safety protocols to ensure they are up-to-date and adopting ergonomic practices, lean principles or administrative and engineering controls.
