(p.1) Introduction
Dying to Work

Jonathan D. Karmel

Cornell University Press

The Introduction presents an overview of the main themes of the book. All workers at all workplaces are at risk for injury and death. Statistics alone prevent the nearness and proximity to understanding the risk of injury and death. Through the workers' stories, the reader is provided intimate access to their risk. In turn, awareness is raised and meaningful change is possible that makes workers safer and employers more accountable.

Keywords:   statistics, risk, injury, death, workplace, awareness, proximity, nearness
