Despite numerous rules and regulations in place, ensuring complete workplace safety still seems challenging in the industrial and commercial sectors. According to the US Department of Labor:
“4,764 workers died on the job in 2020 (3.4 per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers). Workers in transportation and material moving occupations and construction and extraction occupations accounted for nearly half of all fatal occupational injuries (47.4 percent), representing 1,282 and 976 workplace deaths, respectively.”
This shows that having necessary compliance procedures alone is not sufficient to prevent workplace hazards and accidents. We as humans had to think much beyond the boundaries of traditional safety measures.
