Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) Program
Each day about 15 U.S. workers die on the job from traumatic injury. In an effort to address these deaths, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH) Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) Program and State FACE Programs study fatal workplace injuries and prepare reports with recommendations to prevent similar deaths. Worker safety matters.
Washington State FACE fatality and injury narratives are one page documents that describe occupational incidents and provide safety recommendations. Many of the fatality and injury narratives are available in both English and Spanish.
Preventing Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) Motor Vehicle Crashes
Law enforcement officers (LEOs) face increased risk of crashes compared with non-transportation industry workers. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) provides several strategies for consideration to help reduce LEO motor vehicle crashes. These strategies include safe driving measures such as using a seat belt, avoiding unnecessary speed, focusing on driving, and reducing stress. Read the NIOSH Workplace Solutions for injury prevention recommendations to keep law enforcement officers safe while operating motor vehicles.
For more recommendations on ways to prevent law enforcement officers fatalities, see NIOSH FACE Investigation Reports on Motor Vehicle-Law Enforcement Officer Fatalities and State FACE Investigation Reports on Motor Vehicle-Law Enforcement Officer Fatalities. For NIOSH prevention resources see LEO Motor Vehicle Safety.
Created by The Center for Construction Research and Training, the Construction FACE Database (CFD) uses information from NIOSH and State FACE reports on construction-related fatalities.
