Environmental Health & Safety Compliance

Do you know that you are not fully secured until you undergo workplace safety trainings?

A work accident, workplace accident, occupational accident, or accident at work is a "discrete occurrence in the course of work, which leads to physical or mental harm". According to an article about health and safety by the International Labour Organization (ILO), more than 2.3 million deaths per year die as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases. That is roughly 6,300 people daily. 317 million accidents occur on the job annually; many of these resulting in extended absences from work. The human cost of this unwanted trial is huge and the economic burden of poor occupational safety and health practices is estimated at 4% of global Gross Domestic Product each year.

Although many workplace accidents have relatively minor repercussions, which could result in just a paper cut or scratch, others can have more serious - and potentially fatal - consequences. For instance, there are some industries in which individuals are more exposed to occupational hazards than others, such as the construction trade. The construction industry has a disproportionately high rate of recorded accidents. During 2011-2012, falls accounted for 51% of construction injuries resulting in death, demonstrating that builders are more likely to fall from height than those who work in less dangerous locations, such as an office.
