In safety news:

A National Safety Council survey recently found 58 percent of Americans working in construction – the industry that sees the most workplace fatalities each year – feel that safety takes a back seat to productivity and completing job tasks. Additionally, 51 percent say management does only the minimum required by law to keep employees safe, and 47 percent say employees are afraid to report safety issues. By contrast, 36 percent of the 2,000 full-time and part-time employees in the 14 industries surveyed by NSC feel their employers prioritize productivity over safety.
