Shocking statistics show that an estimated 621,000 workers sustained a non-fatal injury at work between 2015 and 2016, according to self-reports. A horrifying total of 144 workers were killed as a result of a workplace accident. What needs to happen to lower these numbers?

EtQ takes pride in supporting hundreds of business all over the world, ensuring that safety procedures are followed and that violations of them are reported appropriately. Knowing that most of the accidents between 2015 and 2016 could have been avoided with the right training, EtQ is taking the next step to make each office, warehouse and shop floor safer, for everyone.
