Personal Protective Equipment: Last Line of Defense, But Top of Mind

Even though organizations are increasing their safety-compliance programs, preventable workplace incidents continue to occur.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 5,000 fatal work injuries are reported in the U.S. each year. Overall, according to the National Safety Council, an injury-related death occurs in less time than it takes to drink your morning coffee —roughly every three minutes of every day.
