Safety Resources

Protecting workers is a number-one priority for the printing industry. Injuries can be life-altering and increase operating costs, expose companies to liabilities, and enforcement actions by OSHA and state OSHA programs. It pays to be aware of what you need to do to implement a safety and health program. Take advantage of PRINTING United Alliance's services to integrate safety into your workplace and update your safety and health programs!

You can use this information to compare your incident rates against the printing industry as a whole or the larger category of manufacturing. The tables below contain the data from the past several years of the published statistics. Questions? Contact us at govtaffairs@printing.org.
