America's Most Dangerous Workplace Isn't Where You'd Expect | OH&S Quest 1 | Scoop.it
Fishing boats and coal-mine accidents grab headlines, but far more workers are getting hurt elsewhere.
Avrol Beecham's insight:

Reasons - funding, media attention, social expectations

Avrol Beecham's insight:

This article is interesting because it highlights the ease of workplace illnesses. Shows the more common injuries that people might not associate with OH&S. Employers need to be aware of these types of issues for their employees and implement policy to avoid these injuries.
