Abstract
Construction work is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor. In 2000, a total of 5,915 occupational deaths were recorded in the U.S. (rate: 4.3 deaths per 100,000 workers); almost one-fifth of these deaths (1,154 deaths) were construction-related (rate: 12.9 deaths per 100,000 workers). The construction fatality rate ranked third after mining (rate: 30.0 deaths/100,000) and agriculture (20.9 deaths/100,000). Since July 1997, the Injury Prevention Service of the Oklahoma State Department of Health has been collecting data on work-related injury deaths in Oklahoma through the Fatality Assessment Control and Evaluation (OKFACE) project, which is funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Data were collected from death certificates, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Public Employees Occupational Safety and Health Program, Worker's Compensation Court, and newspapers. Hospital medical records and law enforcement reports were also used to provide supplemental information.
