In 2006, Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation recorded 67 fatal occupational incidents, and 79 worker deaths. The number represents a rate of 4.4 worker fatalities per 100,000 employed workers in the civilian labor force in Oregon, higher than the national rate of 3.9 (CFOI 2006). OR-FACE produces investigation reports for a selection of incidents according to priority areas defined by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), in combination with local areas of concern. The frequency of priority incidents in 2006 occurred in the following order: Forestry/Logging-12; Machine-related (also mobile machinery)-8; Construction-7; Agriculture-6; Hispanic workers-6; Youth (under age 18)-0; Street and highway work zones-0. The following notable trends occurred in 2006. Motor vehicle transportation events, and incidents involving transportation workers - mostly truck drivers - far surpassed other types of event or occupation (see p. 13-14). Mechanics and maintenance workers rose to the second most frequent occupation for worker fatalities, after transportation, taking the position usually held by construction workers (see p. 13). Numerous cases of delayed death occurred (see p. 31).
