OSHA Aims to Stop Increase in Worker Fatalities

Recently, the agency has seen an increase in fatalities associated with falls, struck-by objects and vehicles, machine hazards, grain bin engulfment, and burns.

OSHA aims to stop a recent increase in workplace fatalities in Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. Recently, the agency has seen an increase in fatalities associated with falls, struck-by objects and vehicles, machine hazards, grain bin engulfment, and burns.

OSHA launched its Safe + Sound Campaign in 2017 to encourage employers to develop and implement a dynamic safety and health program. The campaign has received commitments from 198 organizations thus far.

"OSHA has investigated 34 fatalities in these three states since Oct. 1, 2017," OSHA Regional Administrator Kim Stille said. "Working together with employers, unions, and employees, we can reduce these incidents. By implementing and sustaining workplace safety and health programs we can help employees avoid preventable injuries and fatalities. The agency has additional resources available to help employers of all sizes identify workplace hazards and eliminate them."

 OSHA offers small- and medium-sized businesses free compliance assistance. Each state has its own On-Site Consultation Program, a free, confidential program to help employers learn about their potential workplace hazards and improve safety and health programs. OSHA also offers advice on how an organization can create and integrate safety and health programs via its “Recommended Practices for Safety and Health Programs”.
