Abstract
There were 875 work-related deaths for the six years of 2001-2006 in Michigan. One hundred twenty five (14.3%) of the deaths were a result of a fall. MIFACE will present the descriptive epidemiological data of work-related falls, highlighting fatal falls in the construction sector where 60% of the deaths from falls occurred. We will also present illustrative case studies, educational interventions, and implications for policy.
