Workplace Safety Fair to Be Held in Chicago Area

A workplace safety fair will be held June 18 at the Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel in Northbrook, Illinois. Safety and health professionals will learn about work safety products and educational resources to maintain a safer workplace.

There is a great need for improvements in workplace safety, as millions are injured at work each year and thousands of people lose their lives. Overall, there has been a decrease in fatal work injuries, which are down 21 percent since 2006, but there were still 4,693 workplace deaths in 2011. There are nearly 13 deaths due to workplace injuries every day.

Nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses are a continuing problem as well. In 2011 there were nearly 3 million cases of such injuries and illnesses reported, with about 900,000 cases involving days spent away from work.

In Illinois, there were 177 fatal workplace injuries in 2011. The rate of nonfatal work injuries and illnesses in the state was 3.2 per 100 full-time workers, statistically less than the national average.

The workplace safety fair is hosted by Spectrum OSHA Training Services, and features demonstrations of safety products and information on accident prevention and compliance with safety regulations.
