Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap covers the state of Wyoming’s recent release of its annual analysis on workplace fatalities in the state, which has provided in-depth details on statistics in the state since 2012.
The report is also designed to complement the US BLS’ Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), which consistently ranks Wyoming as having one of the highest occupational fatality rates in the country, more than three times higher than the national average. Key findings from the report included that motor vehicle crashes (51% of the 189 fatalities), followed by contact with an object and falls from heights remain the leading causes of workplace deaths in the state. The report also includes suggestions for helping reduce fatalities in the major sectors.
