Abstract
In July 1997, the Commissioner of Health declared occupational fatalities a reportable condition for special study. Since that time, the Injury Prevention Service has collected data from multiple reporting sources including the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, Oklahoma State Department of Health Division of Vital Records, Occupational Safety and Males Females Health Administration, Oklahoma Department of Labor, Workers' Compensation Court, statewide hospital injury surveillance system, and a newspaper clipping service. Supplemental information has also been obtained from the Department of Public Safety, the Oklahoma Department of Mines, the Oklahoma Lake Patrol, fire departments, police and sheriff departments, and emergency medical services. Although data collection began July 1, 1997, the following analysis includes persons injured during the four-year period from January 1, 1998 through December 31, 2001 in order to reflect seasonal trends. A total of 432 work-related deaths were identified in Oklahoma (average of 108 deaths per year; annual work-related death rate: 6.7 deaths per 100,000 workers). Ages of persons who died ranged from 13 to 90 years of age, with a mean age of 46 years (Figure 1). Males outnumbered females 9 to 1, with males accounting for 91% (392/432) of the work-related deaths.
