Workplace Accident Statistics
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), there are an average of 14 people killed every day on the job. Many workplace accidents and injuries are caused by a failure to adhere to safety standards required by OSHA and other regulatory agencies.
As shown in recent data provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were 59 fatal work injuries in New York City. The highest number of workplace fatalities occurred in the private construction industry sector.
The National Safety Council (NSC) estimates that a worker is injured on the job every seven (7) seconds. Workplace injuries can happen in any industry, including "desk jobs," such as professional and business services and educational and health services.

Common Causes of Workplace Accidents
When a workplace is unsafe, or someone is injured because of employer negligence, they deserve compensation for their damages. Frustratingly, most workplace accidents are entirely preventable. Hundreds of lives could be saved every year if employers would follow safety standards and eliminate hazards.
Common causes of workplace accidents include:
- Employee fatigue
- Machinery malfunction
- Lack of proper ventilation
- Inadequate safety equipment
- Poor lighting
- Transportation-related accidents
- Fire and explosions
- Lack of adequate training or supervision
- Improper fall safety measures
Unfortunately, many employers fail to address even basic health and safety violations resulting in unnecessary injury or death. As an employee, you are entitled to work in a safe environment, be provided with adequate training, and work on machines that function correctly.
