10 Most Dangerous States for Workers

April 15, 2024
"It's clear we need to bridge the gap between existing safety protocols and the real-world needs of our workers."

A new survey analyzing fatality injury rates from the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics was recently released by Edge Fall Protection.

"Exploring the data from our latest study was both eye-opening and heart-wrenching," said Michael McCarty, chief safety officer at Edge Fall Protection. "Seeing the numbers laid out like this isn't just about stats on a page, but it is also a reminder that behind every number is a person, someone's family member, friend, or colleague. Our findings bring attention to a reevaluation of workplace safety across the nation. Especially in states like Wyoming, North Dakota, and Mississippi, where the risks are alarmingly high, it's clear we need to bridge the gap between existing safety protocols and the real-world needs of our workers."
