    Title: Injury and Illness Prevention Programs: Why Do We Need Them?
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:

    • Every day, more than 12 workers die on the job – over 4,500 a year.
    • Every year, more than 4.1 million workers suffer a serious job-related injury or illness.

      We need an enhanced focus on prevention to bring these numbers down.

    Speaker Notes:

    OSHA believes that every employer should have an injury and illness prevention program. Why do we need injury and illness prevention programs?  The statistics are sobering—and unacceptable.

    Every day, more than 12 workers die on the job – over 4,500 a year– and every year, more than 4.1 million workers suffer a serious job-related injury or illness.

    Most of these deaths, injuries and illnesses are preventable. To bring these numbers down, we need to focus on prevention.
