industrial workplace safety resources

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2014 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, 4,821 people – more than 13 per day – died while doing their jobs. Industrial workplace safety is at the heart of every product that we manufacture. Our passion for workplace safety begins in our own place of business. We’re always on the search for helpful resources to help keep our employees safe while on the job.

Here are a few workplace safety resources we’ve found to be most helpful:

1. The National Safety Council 

The National Safety Council eliminates preventable deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy. For 100 years, the National Safety Council has been the leading safety advocate preventing unintentional injuries and death. Go to NSC.org and you will find very helpful resources related to:

Safety at home
Safety at work
Safety on the road

2. US Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration

With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.
