Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation
Portland, OR: Oregon Health and Science University, Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation, 2008 Mar; :1
Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (OR-FACE) monitors, investigates, and reports on occupational fatalities in Oregon. OR-FACE makes safety recommendations for employers and workers, but does not enforce occupational safety standards, nor determine blame. OR-FACE has collected 3 years of data since the program began in 2003, including all workers who have died of traumatic injury on the job in Oregon, whether or not they are an Oregon resident. Independent OR-FACE investigations are conducted in priority areas. Files also include law enforcement and medical examiner reports, and investigation reports from Oregon OSHA or federal safety agencies where applicable. An analysis of fatal transportation incidents illustrates the usefulness of detailed narrative information in a surveillance program.
