The real costs of workplace injuries can be hidden

While many companies in Connecticut prominently declare a commitment to workplace safety, the reality is that an unnecessarily large number of accidents and injuries continue to befall workers on the job. Some companies almost consider worker injuries to be a cost of doing business, even when those costs can be substantial. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration can fine a company $129,336 if willful neglect of safety standards leads to an accident. However, the standard for proving such a level of negligence can be quite high and often difficult for the agency to meet.

Internet of Things tech improves workplace safety

Workplace fatalities and injuries are a huge problem in Connecticut and around the world. In fact, the International Labor Organization reports that 151 workers suffer some sort of on-the-job injury every 15 seconds worldwide. Meanwhile, 321,000 people lose their lives in work-related accidents each year.
