Safety Challenges in the Public Sector
In 2020, the Bureau of Labor Statistics in the United States reported 415 fatalities in the Government (Federal, State, and Local) sector, which equates to 9% of total work-related fatalities.
The public sector also faces increased scrutiny and expenditure associated with managing and adhering with compliance across their departments. As the leader and regulator in occupational health and safety standards, the public sector is held to higher standard when it comes to worker safety. There is also a greater need to demonstrate transparency and accountability to protect their own workers.
