Abstract
Using surveillance data as information for action, collaborative efforts in Alaska have been very successful in applying the insights gained from surveillance to the prevention of occupational mortality and serious injury. Specifically, epidemiologic analysis has been effectively applied toward reducing mortality in Alaska's rapidly expanding helicopter logging industry, and has played an important supportive role in tracking the continuing progress made in reducing the mortality rate in Alaska's commercial fishing industry. However, data has also shown that problems persist with prevention of falls overboard in the fishing industry, and other injuries related to the work processes on fishing vessels and fishing vessels stability. Interagency efforts are ongoing to address these factors.
