News Briefs

Interactive maps pinpoint fatalities statewide

The Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation program (OR-FACE) has recently published a series of interactive maps that show the location of more than 600 occupational fatalities in Oregon. Fatalities from 2003 to 2010 can be filtered by year and are coded by event, occupation, and industry. Current cases (2011 to present) can be filtered by event and year.

More information and abstracts covering the fatalities can be found on the OR-FACE website.

OR-FACE conducts surveillance, investigation, and assessment of traumatic occupational fatalities in Oregon and produces materials to promote worker safety. ORĀ­FACE is part of the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences (formerly the Center for Research on Occupational and Environmental Toxicology) at Oregon Health and Science University. A cooperative agreement with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) supports OR-FACE.

Congratulations to the new VPP company
