The humble safety inspector is one of the forgotten heroes of our modern age.
I know, I know, you get it all the time. People must be buying you drinks non-stop.
In the UK, for instance, there has been an 84% decrease in the number of fatal injuries by employees at work.
In 1974, Britain saw almost 700 people die at work. Now only around 100 die each year at work. That’s about 600 fewer deaths.
Map that back to 1974 and account for a fairly consistent downward trend and we can determine that about 13,500 people didn’t die thanks to improved workplace safety. And that’s just the UK!
Those lives are on you, safety inspectors.
