Safety initiative aims to improve workplace safety

South Carolina employees may be more at risk for injuries and illnesses if they work in a stressful environment. Research has shown that long working hours and lack of support from supervisors can lead to depression and cardiovascular disease. These negative health affects can cause a worker to gain weight and experience sleep problems, leading to an even higher risk of injuries and illnesses.

Workplace injuries and illnesses continue to decline

South Carolina employees may be happy to learn that the number of annual work-related injuries and illnesses has been dropping for over a decade. A report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Oct. 27 shows that the downward trend continued into 2015. Last year, there were around 2.9 million nonfatal work-related injuries and illnesses reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
