Your place of business may seem to be a healthy and safe atmosphere for your workers and customers, but are you sure of that? According the United States Department of Labor, injuries and illnesses in the office are far from uncommon!
The Bureau of Labor Statistics offers the latest numbers on their website from 2010 (the latest figures shown). They are as follows:
- 3,063,400 non fatal injuries and illnesses were recorded
- 933,200 cases involved the employee being unable to work for days
- 370,130 involved sprains, strains, and tears
- 185,270 involved back injuries
- 208,470 involved falls
- 4,547 cases were fatal injuries
These numbers are serious and alarming. This is why it is so important to make sure your employees are comfortable and feel secure and safe in your office. And, if you are a business with frequent customer traffic, such as a retailer or restaurant, you understand the risk is that much higher.
