The National Safety Council asked approximately 2,000 workers about the safety culture in their workplace, and unfortunately, the results painted a discouraging picture of workplace safety in the U.S.:
- 36 percent feel their employers prioritize productivity over safety
- 30 percent say employees are afraid to report safety issues
- Only 62% say all employees are involved in solving job safety issues
All workers, regardless of industry, position, race or sex have the right to work in a safe environment. If you or a loved one were hurt on the job because your employer failed to maintain a safe environment, contact us today. We may be able to help you secure compensation.
