According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 60,200 workers in private industry were injured in non-fatal workplace accidents in Virginia in 2017. The numbers for 2018 will likely be higher. More than half of these workers, approximately 32,000, experienced days away from work, a job transfer, or job restrictions.
