According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the risk of accident or illness is greater in the healthcare sector than in construction and manufacturing—two industries are typically considered risky. In the course of their jobs, employees of this sector are exposed continually to a complex array of health and safety risks. Hazards vary from biological exposure to organism-causing diseases to chemical exposures. Besides physical risks like radiation, contamination and noise, ergonomic problems like heavy lifting, improper use of computer devices and standing for long are also present in the process.
There are approximately 59 million healthcare workers worldwide. According to OSHA 2017 report, the healthcare sector reported more injuries and illnesses than any other sector – 582,800 cases. In the U.S alone, the hospital averages $0.78 in employee’s compensation losses on each $100 of payroll. Nationwide, that means $2 billion in total annual expenditures.
