From 2003 through 2004, there were 280 traumatic work-related deaths reported in New York State, excluding New York City. These largely preventable fatalities represent enormous emotional and financial costs to both families and society. Information on fatal occupational injuries is collected by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) through the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) program and the Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program. The purpose of these programs is to identify contributing factors to occupational fatalities in order to facilitate the development of effective traumatic injury prevention/intervention strategies. This update provides an overview of fatal occupational injury events in New York State for the years 2003 and 2004. Information is presented on employee status, sex, age, and race; the events that caused the fatalities; and occupation and industry. Synopses of NYSDOH FACE reports are also included.
