Washington is #9 as the safest state to work
It should be no surprise that some states are more dangerous than others.
It’s not uncommon to hear people sometimes grumble about their boss, a busy workday, or how stressed they are, but how many of us can really complain about how physically dangerous it is to go to work? You might be surprised.
At Business.org, we analyzed data on fatal and non-fatal injuries across America to find the Most Dangerous States to Work in 2020.
We used the most recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. We looked at the number of fatal workplace injuries per 100k residents 18 and older (75%) with a lower value positively impacting the score. We also factored in in the percent of change from 2016 to 2017 with a lower value positively impacting the score.
