Top 10 Causes of Disabling Injuries at Work
Liberty Mutual's Annual Workplace Safety Index ranks the top 10 most serious workplace injuries by their direct cost to employers. It's based on data from Liberty Mutual, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), and the National Academy of Social Insurance. Liberty Mutual analyzes non-fatal injury data to determine which events caused injuries that result in employees missing more than five days of work. We've reprinted their infographic which summarizes the top 10 injuries, but read the full report on Workplace Safety Indices by industry: insights and methodology. This whitepaper talks about the risks associated with construction, manufacturing, healthcare and five other industry segments. This is great information for agents to share with commercial accounts to help focus safety and prevention efforts on the specific risks they face.
