Fatality and accident investigation reports

Oregon Fatality Reports

  A death in the workplace is always a death that comes too soon. It is a story that is cut short, and each loss represents the loss of dreams for the future. It is a story of family, and of friends, and of co-workers who face the loss and who ask questions for which there are no easy answers.
