Ky Epidemiol Notes & Rep 1997 Aug; 32(8):2-4
In Kentucky, 166 workers were killed on the job in 1994. That year, Kentucky's agriculture/forestry/fishing industry fatality rate of 80/100,000 was more than three times the national rate (see Table 1). Our occupational fatality rate exceeds all contiguous states except West Virginia (NIOSH 1993). This paper describes the occupational fatality data collected during the first year of operation of the Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) Project in Kentucky.
