Abstract
In 2005, Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation recorded 64 fatal occupational incidents, and 67 worker deaths. The number of worker fatalities represents a rate of 3.8 per 100,000 employed workers in the civilian labor force in Oregon, slightly below the national rate of 4.0 (CFOI 2005). OR-FACE produces investigation reports for a selection of incidents according to priority areas defined by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), in combination with local areas of concern. The frequency of priority incidents in 2005 occurred in the following order. Machine-related (also mobile machinery)-14; Construction-11; Forestry/Logging-8; Agriculture-7; Hispanic workers-7; Youth (under age 18)-2; Street and highway work zones-0. Notable trends in 2005 included the following. Four events with mobile machinery involved young workers, aged 21 and under. All four homicides at work in 2005 involved business managers or owners, comprising the main cause of death for this category of workers. Three incidents involved a narcotics overdose, one related to drug abuse, and two related to methadone medication following a work injury.
