Are Accidents More Common in Some Industries?

Yes, certain industries are categorized as high hazard industries. High hazard worksites are based on injury and illness rates of workers averaged over three years. There are approximately 130,000 work sites with 40 or more workers in the U.S. that are rated as high hazard industries, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Industries considered high hazard industries include the following:

  • Beef cattle feedlots;
  • Chicken processing;
  • Marine cargo handling;
  • Towing and tugboat service;
  • Trucking maintenance facilities;
  • Warehousing;
  • Packing and crating;
  • Scrap and waste materials handling;
  • Construction;
  • Roofing;
  • Fish and seafood processing;
  • Lumber yards;
  • Airport terminal services; and
  • Packaged frozen foods plants

Workers are entitled by law to safe and healthy workplaces. The U.S. Department of Labor inspects workplaces to ensure that employers take proper steps to minimize workers' risk of injuries and illnesses. Unfortunately, some employers still place profits ahead of the safety of their workers.
