The National Safety Council has been collecting and studying statistics for nearly 100 years, but the organization revealed a new section on Tuesday specifically for workplace statistics.The
The database, now completely online, details injury facts, worker details and timelines, which help to understand why these injuries and fatalities occur.
“We want to double-down and be aggressive when it comes to these issues,” said National Safety Council President and CEO Deborah A.P. Hersman.
Ken Kalosh (shown above), manager of statistics at the National Safety Council, said the online database, which he has been working on for the past year, will hopefully help employers and employees make workplaces safer.
“We are eight times safer at work than we are at home, but the data remind us that our workplaces could still be much safer,” Kolosh said.
