Factories and manufacturing plants are among the most hazardous workplaces. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the manufacturing sector has one of the highest rates of work-related injuries and illnesses. On average, nearly 350 workers in the manufacturing industry are killed every year in work-related accidents.
Manufacturing jobs often require working in close proximity to dangerous, fast-moving machinery and hazardous materials. Exposure to toxic chemicals can also cause cancer or other illnesses over the long term.
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has implemented numerous detailed regulations to help ensure workers' safety in factories and manufacturing plants. Unfortunately, however, many workplaces do not keep abreast of current safety practices. Even small lapses can have tragic consequences.
