Changes in occupational injury rates over the 1980s wereexamined though analysis of the National Traumatic Occupational Fatalities surveillance system.
The US occupational injury mortality rate decreased 37% over the decade, with decreases seen in nearly every demographic an employment sector.
Greater declines were among men, Blacks, and younger workers, as well as among agricultural, trade, and service workers.
Electrocutions, machine-related incidents, and homicides showed the greatest decreases.
Changes in occupational mortality rates by demography, industry, and cause of death indicate the areas in which the most progress has been made and those that are prime targets for prevention efforts.
