What employers should know about safety signs

Texas employers that have not yet adopted the current American National Standards Institute workplace safety poster designs may be unwittingly putting their people in danger. This is because the old signs were written in English only, which means that those who are not fluent in that language may not benefit from them. Furthermore, they only identify what the danger is while neglecting to mention the consequences of such a hazard. These signs also do nothing to help a person avoid the hazard.

Hazardous working conditions cause 150 deaths daily

Texas workers may be dismayed to learn that about 150 employees lose their lives daily because of a preventable occupational injury or illness, according to a report compiled by the AFL-CIO. However, the report also noted that since the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was passed, the lives of roughly 553,000 employees have been saved.
