After more than two decades of attempts to reduce workplace fatalities, the average decrease in such events has been very low compared to the average decrease in workplace injuries. This is a major concern for EHS managers, as it shows that traditional approaches have not had a similar and significant impact on reducing workplace fatalities. This report aims to provide EHS managers with a new analysis of influencing factors, provide insights into new approaches to reducing these fatalities and serious injuries, and suggest technologies that can aid in this endeavour.
