A new AFL-CIO report says 93 workers were killed in Iowa in 2011. The report says the state is not doing enough to prevent workplace fatalities.
The national report ranks Iowa 42nd in workplace safety, due to lack of staffing in oversight-related offices.
Currently it would take the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 89 years to inspect each workplace in Iowa.
“A lot of work still needs to be done to ensure that no worker fears for his or her health and well being on the job,” says Ken Sagar, President of the Iowa Federation of Labor.
“Many workers are still unable to have a voice on the job and to advocate for better working conditions."
