Each day, between 12 to 13 U.S. workers die as a result of a traumatic injury on the job. Investigations conducted through the FACE program allow the identification of factors that contribute to these fatal injuries. This information is used to develop comprehensive recommendations for preventing similar deaths. This web page provides access to NIOSH investigation reports and other safety resources.

Fatality Investigation Reports Indexed by Program


NIOSH FACE Reports Brought to Life

Every FACE report provides details of the conditions and series of events that led to a deadly incident and concludes with recommendations for preventing similar deaths. CPWR -The Center for Construction Research and Training used FACE reports to create three short training videos, each based on the true story of a fatal construction incident.

Look Up and Live vividly illustrates how an aluminum ladder plus power lines can be a deadly combination. No New Year tells the tragic story of a New Year's Eve trench collapse. A Simple Task describes how a worker washing windows during final clean-up of a new condominium fell from a ladder.
