  • Why is Safety in the Workplace so Important?

    Recent information has shown that casualties in the workplace were up in 2011, while they dropped in construction, there were more deaths in transportation and other services than in earlier years. That brings up the question, why is safety in the workplace such a big deal?

    It is important for employees to have a place to work that is safe and free from dangers that can hurt them while they are trying to work. However, everyone in the workplace has to pull together to achieve a 0% when it comes to accidents. OSHA and the presidency are working together to ensure that every employer works towards the goal of zero accidents on the job.

    One problem seems to be that employers, as well as workers, aren’t taking workplace safety seriously. It’s the common assumption that all of us have, “it can’t happen to me, I know what I’m doing.” Then the phone rings and you realize it has happened to a loved one, or you are in an accident at work that ends with you in a wheelchair or seriously injured.

    Once an accident happens, it can’t be taken back; so it’s better to work to prevent the accident from happening in the first place. The video “Before Days End,” gives us a harsh inside look at exactly what being careless in the workplace can do to you, and the loved ones that you may leave behind.

    Safety in the workplace is not only a responsibility that you have to your employer, and your employer to you, it’s a responsibility that every worker has to the families that they are working to support. One slip, one careless step, or being distracted just for a moment, can destroy the very reason you are working in the first place.
