Do you know what day of the work week has the most accidents?

The answer is Monday. According to workplace accident data from the US Bureau of Labor, Monday is statistically the most dangerous day of the week for workplace accidents.

In 2013, Mondays were responsible for about 167,000 instances of someone getting hurt at work — more than any other day. And it’s not just that year: Monday has been the most injury-prone day of the week in all but two years since 2007.

What does that mean for your employees? Make sure they are getting plenty of oversight on Mondays, and maybe take time to present a Toolbox Talk that day.
