Each day, U.S. workers suffer injury, disability, and death from workplace incidents. On average, 15 workers die each day from traumatic injuries. Overall, 5,400 workers died in 2007 from an occupational injury and more than 4 million workers had a nonfatal injury or illness. In the private-sector alone every day, we see 11,500 nonfatal work-related injuries/illnesses with more than half of these injuries/illnesses requiring a job transfer, work restrictions, or time away from the jobs as a result. Among all workers, not just the private sector, 9,000 workers are treated in emergency departments each day, and approximately 200 of these workers are hospitalized.
