Negligence in the Workplace

"Every day in America, 12 people go to work and never come home. Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover." - Hilda Solis, Former Secretary of Labor, 2012

Four million people per year. That's more than 10 thousand people per day. How many of these injuries were caused by negligence in the workplace?

What is Negligence?

Negligence is defined as "conduct that falls below the standards of behavior established by law for the protection of others against unreasonable risk of harm." In the workplace, negligence is typically the result of a failure to maintain and uphold company standards of operations, behavior, or protocol, which in turn results in harm, injury, or damage to an employee of that workplace.
