A farm worker overcome by fumes while loading pig manure onto a truck in Ohio; a convenience store clerk shot during an attempted robbery in New Jersey. Both men are among the 150 job-related fatalities in the U.S. every day, many of which federal regulators say are preventable. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) this month proposed fines against the companies involved in these two incidents, saying employee safety had been disregarded. On average, 13 workers were fatally injured and more than 10,000 were hurt or made ill every day in 2014, according to a report released this week.
