FYI: New York ranks near the bottom among states when it comes to workplace safety and employees missing days of work because of the resulting injuries. In its state-by-state evaluation of workers comp programs, using OSHA data for the year 2000, the Work Loss Data Institute gave New York an F–graded on a curve–pointing to both its poor record in preventing injury and the length of time those injuries keep workers at home. According to the report, 2.1 out of every 100 full-time New York workers lost days of work as a result of injury in 2000, and a quarter of them missed more than a month. [3/12/03]
