A Texas Steel Company Celebrates Two Million Hours Without An Injury

KLTV ABC out of Tyler, Texas recently reported on a steel company that has made it over two million working hours without an on the job injury. The company, Southwest Steel Casting, melts down and casts steel, which is generally considered to be a relatively dangerous line of work. Their commitment to safety is very impressive and shows us that other industrial companies in the state still need to do more. Worker safety must be a top priority for any business. If you have been injured on the job, do not hesitate to contact an experienced San Antonio workplace accident attorney to discuss your legal options.

Work Injuries are Still Common in Texas

Despite the encouraging news from this specific steel casting company, businesses in the state as a whole are still underachieving in regards to worker safety. Reports from the Bureau of Labor Statistics consistently demonstrate that Texas is behind the nation in the area of workplace safety. In seven out of the last ten years, Texas has lead the nation in on the job fatalities. Further, out of the ten largest states in the country, Texas has had the highest on the job injury rate over the last decade. The excuse that the rates can not be accurately compared between the states falls flat, because Texas has workplace injury rates well above the national average in virtually every individual industry. The bottom line is that Texas employers need to do more to protect worker health and safety.
