  • Description:
    "An estimated 15.9 million people worked in the Manufacturing Sector in 2008, which accounted for approximately 10.9% of the employed U.S. workforce. In 2008, about one in seven recordable workplace injuries and illnesses and one in thirteen workplace fatalities occurred in Manufacturing. An emerging risk is a recently discovered actual or potential hazard to people and property. The hazard is typically recognized by empirical means including engineering analyses, accident or injury investigations, toxicological studies, and epidemiological studies. Newly synthesized materials for which empirical studies are lacking may be identified as emerging issues because of the nature and physical characteristics of the materials. Occupational exposure to newly synthesized materials, as an example, is an emerging risk." - NIOSHTIC-2
