“It is alarming that today in the U.S. 13 people-a-day are dying from work-related injuries, a total of 4,609 workers died in 2011 from on-the-job injuries. This is a serious problem that we find unacceptable. These incidents can be prevented. Effective management systems help identify safety and health issues before they result in injury, and establish prevention strategies that can protect all workers. Remember, these are 4,609 people who left for work in the morning and never returned home to their families.
