Online Map Pinpoints Workplace Fatalities

U.S. Rep. George Miller (D-CA), chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, has launched a new interactive online map that enables people to learn about many of the workplace fatalities that have occurred in their own communities this year.

The map, which displays geographic "push pin" markers that users click on for details, relies on published news reports in 2007 to show worker fatalities nationwide, and it includes information about the workers' occupations and causes of death, along with a link to the original report of the fatality. The map represents roughly 10 percent of the total number of on-the-job fatalities so far this year, according to information posted on the Committee's Web site. "It is not a comprehensive report, but [the map] demonstrates the need to strengthen worker safety protections," the site says.
