Temporary workers are twice as likely to die on the job than permanent workers. Even more disturbing, temporary workers are most likely to die on their first day, first week, or first month on the job.
Ken Montgomery, OSHA's Cincinnati area director, and other safety workers came together to speak about the increase in temporary workers dying on the job. They spoke at a screening of a new documentary, "A Day's Work." The documentary explained how 21 year old Lawrence Dacquan Davis died on the first day at his temporary job at a Bacardi bottling plant.
He was given fifteen minutes of training. Before lunch on his first day, he was crushed to death by two tons of bottles in a palletizer machine.
