Do you feel safe at work? The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) reports that nearly 4,600 workers died on the job in the U.S in 2013 or, on average, about 12 workers each day.
Still, that is down from an average of 38 worker deaths per day in 1970, while the total in 2013 (the latest year for which data is available) represents the second-lowest number of fatalities on the job since OSHA started tracking them in 1992.
