Workplace conditions can be deadlyPosted On Mon, August 30, 2010
For some people, going into work involves sitting at a desk behind a computer screen where very little physical harm can take place beyond eyestrain or back pain from poor posture. Others, however, work physical jobs that consistently place employees in dangerous situations.
Some jobs can be so dangerous that a number of people are involved in a fatal accident. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than 4,000 people lost their lives last year due to a work-related accident.
Those who work in an industry that consistently puts them in hazardous conditions may want to consider going online to get a life insurance quote and purchasing a policy. Funds from a life insurance policy can help care for loved ones in the event of a fatal accident.
People who work in the agriculture and forestry industry are at the most risk for a occupational injury. The BLS says 26 per 100,000 workers experienced a fatal occupational injury last year. There was also a reported 6 percent increase in workplace fatalities for those working in the building and grounds-cleaning professions.
