States May Not Be Protecting Their Employees
In a 2017 report by the National Safety Council, Iowa received a "D" for overall safety as well as in workplace safety. With 4,836 workplace deaths in 2015, there has been a back-to-back rise in fatalities in the workplace since 2008, and more than 12,000 workers are injured on the job each day.
Agriculture, warehousing, and transportation are all industries that are considered the most dangerous to their employees. Temporary workers face twice the risk of getting a severe workplace injury due to unsafe work sites and receiving less training before being assigned a high-risk task.
Although all states must comply with federal regulations, many states at the top of the safety rankings took additional measures to protect their workers, including training to handle workplace violence and providing health and safety programs for employees.
