Abstract
This booklet tells the stories of young workers aged 12-24 who were killed on the job in Oregon from 2003 through 2007. In those 5 years, 352 workers of all ages were killed on the job in Oregon, including 45 young workers. Traumatic injury is the leading cause of death in the USA for youth and young adults. The true stories told here may help you to recognize and avoid serious hazards on the job. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death at work. Other fatal events include falls, contact with machines, drowning, poisoning, and violence. All of these events, and more, are told in the stories on the following pages.
