Abstract
The use of large, mobile machinery results in many injuries and deaths each year in the United States. From 1998 to 2008, 89 people were killed in non-farming mobile machinery related incidents in Oklahoma. Almost all deaths occurred among males; ages ranged from 18 to 82. One-third of injuries occurred from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Two-thirds of incidents involved a forklift, tractor, aerial lift, or crane. Seventeen percent of injuries were construction related, 15% were work zone related, and 8% were oil and gas related. The most common causes of injuries were being struck/crushed by machinery, falls, and machinery rollovers.
