Workplaces that specialize in the production and storage of goods are filled with heavy industrial equipment and other workers rushing to get the job done.

As a manufacturing center for the country, Pennsylvania’s numbers are very high; nearly 12,000 injuries to manufacturing employees occurred in the state.
