The healthcare industry accounts for a high proportion of all national workplace injuries, as employees from this sector report some of the highest rates of injury and illness from all private industries, according to a report from Zurich on healthcare-related workers’ compensation claims.

Healthcare is also one of the key sources of employment in the US, with notable job gains occurring in this sector in April in the recent update on unemployment from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

“The healthcare sector has been growing for years and will continue to do so. It’s one of the largest, fastest growing segments of the industry,” said Todd Pollock, senior vice president of workers’ compensation at Worldwide Facilities.
