Safety Services Company Helps Canadian Employees Avoid Death
Date:4/16/2013

(PRWEB) April 16, 2013

In honor of the National Day of Mourning, Safety Services Company is offering Canadian employers a poster designed to increase awareness around workplace fatalities.

“Almost three employees in Canada will die every day on the job. These are deaths that are mostly preventable through proper safety training and administrative controls,” said Safety Services Company Spokesman Michael Rich. “We are offering this complimentary poster to help spread the serious message of workplace death and injuries.”

In 2011, the most recent year with available data, 919 workplace deaths were recorded in Canada, or about 2.6 deaths every day. Furthermore, in the nineteen-year period from 1993 to 2011, 17,062 people lost their lives due to work-related causes, an average of 898 deaths per year.

The most dangerous industries proved to be construction, manufacturing and transportation, which combined accounted for slightly more than 50 percent of all occupational deaths.

While men account for 97 percent of all worker deaths in Canada, the injury rate between them and their female counterparts are essentially even.

“Men typically work in environments where a safety mishap is more likely to cause a fatal injury,” Rich said.

In addition to the three workers killed every day on the job, it is estimated that during the course of a year almost one out of every 46 workers will miss a day of work due to an occupational injury.

To help prevent death and injury Safety Services Company is offering a free poster designed to hammer home the importance of working safely. The poster features an image of a young girl standing at a grave and points out the mass amounts of worker deaths.

In addition to the free poster, the company is offering all Canadian employers a 20 percent discount off of a safety me
