June 12, 2013 (San Diego) – Every day Fire and EMS personnel respond to workplace accidents resulting in injury and even death.  It’s estimated that nearly 4 million employees suffer from a workplace injury and employers spend more than $170 billion on associated costs each year.  Many of these accidents could be avoided if an education and prevention program were in place says Fire Chief Sam DiGiovanna.
