Occupational Fatalities Decline in Latest Reporting Year

Friday, August 20, 2010

Comment | More

Occupational fatalities declined by 17% in 2009, according to a preliminary report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics issued on Aug. 19.

In 2009, the latest reporting year, 4,340 workers died from work-related injuries, according to preliminary results from the Bureau’s National Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, down 17% from the 5,214 occupational fatalities that occurred in 2008.

Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis issued the following statement in response to the report.

“A single worker hurt or killed on the job is one too many.

“While a decrease in the number of fatal work injuries is encouraging, we cannot—and will not—relent from our continued strong enforcement of workplace safety laws.”

“As the economy gains strength and more people re-enter the workforce, the Department of Labor will remain vigilant to ensure America's workers are kept safe while they earn a paycheck. After all, as I've said before, no job is a good job unless it is also safe.”
