Take care, Maryland workers. According to the National Safety Council, a U.S. worker is injured on the job every seven seconds. That adds up to 12,900 workplace injuries a day and 4.7 million each year.
Young workers should be especially careful. A Travelers Insurance report has revealed more than 25 percent of workplace injuries take place in the first year of employment, when new workers are less experienced. Older workers are also at greater risk, suffering more strains and sprains as their bodies age.
