One of the most dangerous things you can do in America today is show up for work. Every year, 10,000 Americans are killed on the job, while more than 70,000 others die of work-related illness and six million others are injured. Death on the Job reveals how workers' safety is being compromised with tragic consequences. Interviews with accident investigators, co-workers and victims' families detail the causes and consequences of accidents, while extensive news footage and home videos taken by accident survivors and family members expose the hazards of such industries as commercial fishing, construction and chemical refineries. An indictment of inadequate governmental safeguards, this important film makes a powerful plea for the protection of workers.
