Employees in high-risk industries are choosing productivity over their own health and safety, according to survey results from the National Safety Council.

Of the 2,000 employees surveyed across the nation, 60 percent of those in the construction industry and 52 percent from agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting, felt safety was less of a priority than finishing job-related tasks. Those particular industries are in the top two when it comes to the number of occupational deaths each year. Among all respondents, the number was 33 percent.
