i 53,113 ACCIDENTS IN 1914
Of These 38,12(1 Were Reported to
the Department of Labor and
Some time ago the bureau of statis
tics of the Department of Labor and
Industry completed its statistics of in-
I dustrial accidents for 1914, according
! to industries, a resume of which has
j been widely published. The bureau has
I now finished the tabulation of* these
; accidents by causes and injuries, from
which the following interesting data
! and useful suggestions are culled. A.
j R. Houok is chief of this bureau.
"The total number of accidents re
-1 ported to the Department of Laibor
and Industry during the year 1914, is
| 38,112'6. Adding the number of acci-
I dents reported to the Mining Depart
: ment and to the Public Service Com
mission, the grand total is 53,113.
| This numlber, though large, cannot be
' considered the sum of all accidents
that occur in our State, since the acci
dents reported to the Department of
Labor and Industry are only those oc
curring in industrial establishments.
There is also a rule in the latter de
partment that avcidents occasioning a
loss of less than two days' work need
not be reported. Therefore, 53,113
represents only a part of the total
number of accidents for the past year.
"The causes from which the great
est number of accidents occur are, first,
in hand labor, chiefly from being
caught between, or struck by, material
or hurt with tools, a total of 20,339
accidents; second, from falling from
ladders or scaffolds into unprotected
holes, or slipping or tripping, a total
of 4,178 accidents; third, from com
ing into contact with moving machin
ery, a total of 2,836 accidents; fourth,
from burns of various kinds, a total
of 2,4 44 accidents.
"Figures of such size, representing
accidents from being caught or struck
by material, or from coming into con
tact with moving machinery, would
seem to show carelessness on the part
of workmen, or lack of sufficient
guards. If the proper machine guards
were installed and used in the proper
manner, the majority of such accidents
could surely be avoided.
"The inspectors of the Department
of Laibor and Industry have found in
their visits to industrial plants that
the greatest force towards the elimina
tion of accidents and the maintenance
of personal safety is the establishment
of safety organizations. The education
of workmen in the avoidance of care
loss methods, and in t'he thought of in
dividual responsibility, is the greatest
force in the furtherance of ITie safety
