By the Numbers: Workplace Injuries and Illnesses in 2013

 

Americans were safer in 2013 than 2012 at work, but they still faced many injuries and illnesses, according to a recent study from The Department of Labor. Some of the top findings included a drop in incident rates from 2012, that tractor trailer drivers hold the most dangerous private sector jobs and that musculoskeletal disorders were the most commonly reported injuries.
