The Most Dangerous States to Work In
From Business.org, February, 2020
It’s not uncommon to hear people sometimes grumble about their boss, a busy workday, or how stressed they are, but how many of us can really complain about how physically dangerous it is to go to work? You might be surprised.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 5,000 people suffer fatal work injuries every year.3 There were even more workplace injuries that weren’t fatal, but still serious enough to land someone in the hospital.
This means that in addition to all the other choices business owners need to make, they also need to decide how much workers compensation insurance coverage they need—all while creating a safe work environment. What’s more, the stress of working in a dangerous environment can have long-term negative effects on employees who might not want to commit life and limb to the job.
