An accident is an unpredictable event, difficult if not impossible to prevent – like when a meteor lands in your living room. Workplace deaths, unfortunately, are much less rare than meteors.

If employers were to implement these strategies more consistently and effectively, thousands of workers who have died on the job would be alive today.
