June is National Safety Month & The Latest Statistics are Staggering! Every 7 Seconds a Worker is Injured on the Job!

Join The Man Store and National Safety Council (NSC) and thousands of organizations across the country as we work to raise awareness of what it takes to Keep Each Other Safe. Observed annually in June, National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities.

Nearly 13,000 American workers are injured each day! These numbers are staggering, and the worst part is that each one is preventable. Taking preventative action can spare workers needless pain and suffering.

In addition, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2014 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, 4,821 people – more than 13 per day – died while doing their jobs.

Implementing safety measures can change these statistics. These were the numbers:

- 4,454 were men and 367 were women

- Most were between 45 and 64 years old

- Among industries most affected were construction (899 deaths), transportation and warehousing (766), agriculture (584), government (435), professional and business services (425) and manufacturing (349)

Most of them – 1,984 – died in transportation incidents, followed by:

- Slips, trips and falls: 818
- Injuries by people or animals: 765 (409 of these were homicides)
- Contact with objects and equipment: 715
- Exposure to harmful substances or environments: 390
- Other events or exposures: 149

Each one of these deaths was 100% preventable and The Man Store can help! Shop us to find the latest Safety Gear & PPE products and Stay up to date on current Industry News!
