According to NSC, three times as many employees are injured off the job than while at work. NSC also noted that unintentional injuries and deaths in the United States remain at "unacceptable levels" - an estimated 126,100 unintentional deaths occurred in 2010, compared with approximately 122,700 the previous year. Furthermore, the cost of unintentional injuries to Americans and their employers exceeds $730 billion nationally, or $6,200 per household, and causes great suffering for individuals and their families.
Protecting Workers Who Use Cleaning Chemicals indexed from OSHA
Workplaces, such as schools, hospitals, hotels, restaurants and manufacturing plants, use cleaning chemicals to ensure the cleanliness of their buildings. Workers who handle these products include building maintenance workers, janitors and housekeepers. Some cleaning chemicals can be hazardous, causing problems ranging from skin rashes and burns to coughing and asthma.
Many employers are switching to green cleaning products because they are thought to be less hazardous to workers and the environment.
