    Job Safety - by Dick Meister, ZNet
    Pay attention, damnit: More than 6,000 Americans are killed on the job every year. More than three million are injured, at least half of them seriously. Another 60,000 die from cancer, lung and heart ailments and other diseases caused by exposure to toxic substances on the job.

    Think of it: That's an average of at least 16 workers killed and 17,000 injured on each and every day of each and every year, another 164 dying daily from job-related illness.
