According to recent data, health care has the second highest worker injury and illness rates in the state. Hoosiers who work in the medical field are more likely to become injured or ill than those employed in manufacturing and construction, which are typically considered high-risk sectors.

The new plan focuses on addressing the most common healthcare risks. These include slips, trips, and falls; repetitive stress injuries; incidental needlesticks; and exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Educational efforts will be spearheaded by INSafe, the state OSHA consultation program.

Labor Commissioner Sean M. Keefer says improving the health of medical professionals will result in an overall improvement in the health of the state.
