OR-FACE Releases New Resources

OR-FACE Incident Maps

One death on the job is always too many. As we share new resources created by the Oregon Occupational Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (OR-FACE) Program, we are ever mindful of the somberness of this topic.

Since 2003, OR-FACE has tracked over 600 work-related deaths in the state of Oregon and has now published all confirmed Oregon occupational fatalities as interactive maps. These fatality maps can be filtered by year and are coded by events, occupation, and industry. The most current cases, 2011 to present, can be filtered further by both event and year. The maps with all available years selected reveal transportation as the top industry, occupation, and event to fatally injure working Oregonians. For more information about specific fatalities represented in the maps, you can explore the OR-FACE website and even download descriptive abstracts for all cases.

OR-FACE has also just published its Annual Report for 2011. In 2011, OR FACE recorded 59 fatal occupational fatalities and as many incidents. Overall, the number of fatalities went up compared to the 51 fatalities in 2010. Though transportation remains the most common event and occupation for Oregon workplace fatalities, logging and forestry was the most fatal industry with 10 total fatalities.
