Your job is part of who you are. It pays your bills, funds your children's health and welfare, and gives a sense of pride and achievement. It's a fundamental right that, while you're in the assigned location doing your assigned duties, you will be as safe as can be. This is the case in all injuries, whether you work on the docks, in construction, waiting tables or delivering newspapers.
