It’s one of the worst things that can happen to a company and its employees. Even in organizations where workplace safety is a priority, accidents still occur. When an employee dies at work, the aftermath can be severe and the repercussions go well beyond lost revenue and increased costs.

Every day in the United States, 16 people die from work-related traumatic injuries and 137 people die from work-related diseases, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. In 2012 alone, 4,383 workers were killed on the job, according to OSHA. Workplace hazards can be reduced by following strict safety programs, but too often, preventable accidents prove fatal.

Any time an employee dies on the job it is a tragedy with tremendous emotional and financial consequences. In fact, the average total economic cost of a workplace fatality is $1,410,000, according to the National Safety Council. This figure estimates costs to the employer, community and state.
