Abstract
Did you know that in 2003, 75 people died from work-related injuries in Oregon and more than 58,000 people reported being hurt or get-ting sick from their jobs? Work-related injuries and illnesses cost $447 million annually in workers' compensation claims in the state, and the indirect costs are likely to be more than twice as high. Workplace injury and illness can be prevented. While Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division enforces regulations and issues fines to offenders, the role of the Oregon Worker Injury and Illness Prevention Program (OWIIPP) is to collect the information needed to develop prevention plans that stop work-related injuries and illnesses before they happen, saving both lives and money. By working with as many partners as possible, OWIIPP is leveraging resources to do just that.
