In July 1997, the Commissioner of Health declared work-related fatalities a reportable condition for special study. The Injury Prevention Service of the Oklahoma State Department of Health began collecting data on work-related injury deaths in Oklahoma through the Oklahoma Fatality Assessment Control and Evaluation (OKFACE) project. Both intentional and unintentional work-related injury deaths were included. Persons working in the public and private sector were included as were family businesses (e.g., farms) and volunteer workers (e.g., firefighters). Data were collected from Vital Statistics, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Public Employees Occupational Safety and Health Program, the Department of Public Safety, Workers' Compensation Court, and newspapers. Hospital medical records and law enforcement reports were also used to provide supplemental information. Rates were calculated using Current Population Survey data summed for all eight years of data.
