CAPP Report Shows Vehicle Cause 6 Out Of 10 Workplace Deaths

According to research based on data obtained for the period between 2001-13, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers estimates that vehicles are responsible for 60% of all workplace fatalities all over Canada. These findings are not related to the fossil fuels industry but also cover retail, construction, transport and wide variety of industries. The CAPP believes that nearly three-thirds of all deaths were caused in the transport and equipment operators, trades, and related industries. These deaths don't include the workplace fatalities caused by diseases. This data does not include data from Ontario and the period of 2001-07 from Alberta.

Safety measures taken by employers need to be better

There is always a high degree of risk to worker safety in any industry that involves a large degree of time spent working on heavy machinery. The importance of top quality medical aid at these high risks cannot be overstated enough. In addition to being crushed by tons of metals, worker safety is also compromised by the presence of noxious gases especially in workplaces where fossil fuels are combusted on a large scale basis.

Safety standards must be updated on a yearly basis in order to prevent as many deaths as possible.
