Not only are some industries more hazardous than others, but some are more dangerous than might be expected. Employers and employees in Texas should consider the list of the top 10 most dangerous jobs in the U.S., which were recently compiled based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS, in its 2016 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, has also calculated the fatal work injury rate and the number of deaths in each industry listed.
Slip, trips and falls that occur in Texas workplaces can result in serious injuries for workers. Because these types of injuries can have a major impact on an employee's health and ability to work, employers should be diligent in uncovering and preventing these types of injuries from occurring.
