    Default Don’t Become ‘Numb’ to Workplace Deaths and Illnesses

    States around the country are honoring those that lost their lives due to work related incidents.

    Don’t Become ‘Numb’ to Workplace Deaths and Illnesses, AFL-CIO President Says During Workers’ Memorial Week

    Washington, DC — AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka cautioned the public not to become “numb” to workplace fatalities and illnesses, as his organization released its annual report detailing the hazards workers face every day.

    Death on the Job: The Toll of Neglect was published April 25 during Workers' Memorial Week (April 22-29), which honors workers who have lost their lives on the job, and ahead of Workers' Memorial Day (April 28). The report features state and federal data on worker fatalities, injuries and illnesses, as well as on worker protections.

    In 2017, the number of worker deaths decreased to 5,147 from 5,190 in 2016, but was still higher than the 4,836 reported in 2015. Another 95,000 or so die each year because of on-the-job illnesses, the report states, which means that, in 2017, about 275 people died from work-related causes each day.

    The statistics are quite sobering.

    AFL-CIO Releases Yearly Worker Safety Report

    In recognition of Workers Memorial Day, the AFL-CIO has released its 2019 edition of “Death on the Job: The Toll of Neglect,” a national and state-by-state profile of worker safety and health in the United States.

    In 2017, 5,147 workers lost their lives on the job as a result of traumatic injuries, according to fatality data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Each day in this country, an average of 14 workers die because of job injuries—women and men who go to work, never to return home to their families and loved ones. This does not include those workers who die from occupational diseases, estimated to be 95,000 each year.

    Violence is also a growing threat to workers’ safety, especially in the health care industry. Rates of violence against health care workers are reported to be up to 12 times higher than rates for the overall workforce.
