Abstract
The Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation program (OR-FACE) monitors, investigates, and reports on occupational fatalities in Oregon, and collaborates with public and private partners to help prevent similar deaths. A national FACE program was begun by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in 1982, and was expanded to the states in 1992. Oregon joined 14 other state FACE programs in October 2002. According to its mission, OR-FACE has developed staff and technical capacity for surveillance, investigation, assessment, and outreach related to occupational fatalities in the state. A team of four contribute management, data and outreach, investigation, and analysis, respectively and together. The 76 occupational fatalities in Oregon in 2003 correspond to an incident rate of 4.45 per 100,000, when counting all workers in the civilian labor force. Further use of rates for specific occupations is avoided in this report, due to common confusion in the use of employment statistics. The civilian labor force includes both employed and unemployed, but some reported rates use only the employed, many exclude the self-employed, while others adjust for military personnel. Rates are also less reliable with only 1 year of data. With descriptive detail, this report provides a snapshot and a foundation for later analyses. Of immediate value, the story of each loss of life presents a lesson in itself.
