A new survey from the National Safety Council (NSC) reveals many U.S. workers think their companies prioritize productivity before safety. Workers in high-risk industries were more likely to say safety takes a backseat to production.
The NSC surveyed 2,000 employees across the nation and found 33% believe their companies put production before safety. The percentage was higher among workers in high-risk industries.
Sixty percent of construction workers and 52% of those working in agriculture, fishing, forestry and hunting said production trumps safety in their organizations.
