Fatal Work Injuries in Pennsylvania — 2017

Fatal work injuries totaled 172 in 2017 for Pennsylvania, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Sheila Watkins, the Bureau’s regional commissioner, noted that the number of work-related fatalities in Pennsylvania increased from 163 in the previous year. Fatal occupational injuries in the state have ranged from a high of 354 in 1994 to a low of 163 in 2016. (See chart 1.)

Nationwide, a total of 5,147 fatal work injuries were recorded in 2017, down slightly from the 5,190 fatal injuries reported in 2016, according to the results from the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) program.

Type of incident

In Pennsylvania, transportation incidents resulted in 61 fatal work injuries and contact with objects and equipment accounted for 34 fatalities. These two major categories accounted for 55 percent of all workplace fatalities in the commonwealth. (See table 1.) The number of worker deaths from transportation incidents increased from 55 in the previous year, while worker fatalities due to contact with objects and equipment decreased by 1 from 2016.

Violence and other injuries by persons or animals was the third-most frequent fatal work event with 27 fatalities, up from 17 in the prior year. Exposure to harmful substances or environments resulted in 26 work-related deaths, an increase from 20 in 2016.

Nationally, transportation incidents remained the most frequent fatal workplace event in 2017, accounting for 40 percent of fatal work injuries. (See chart 2.) Falls, slips, or trips was the second-most common fatal event (17 percent), followed by violence and other injuries by persons or animals (16 percent).

Industry

The private transportation and warehousing sector had the largest number of fatalities in Pennsylvania with 44, up from 28 in the previous year. (See table 2.) Long-distance general freight trucking accounted for 16, or 36 percent, of the fatal injuries in this industry. Transportation incidents was the most frequent fatal event in the private transportation and warehousing sector, accounting for 73 percent of all worker deaths in this sector.

The private construction industry sector had 31 workplace fatalities, down from 39 in 2016. Seventy-one percent of those fatally injured in this sector worked in specialty trade contracting. Falls, slips, or trips was the most frequent fatal event in the construction sector with 12 worker deaths, followed by transportation incidents with 7 fatalities.

Occupation

Transportation and material moving occupations and construction and extraction occupations had the highest number of workplace fatalities with 52 and 34, respectively. (See table 3.) The majority of the fatalities within the transportation and material moving group were heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers (35). Construction trades workers accounted for 23 of the 34 fatalities among construction and extraction workers.

Contracted Workers

A contractor is defined as a worker employed by one firm but working at the behest of another firm that exercises overall responsibility for the operations at the site of the fatal injury. In 2017, Pennsylvania had 17 fatally-injured workers identified as fitting the contractor criteria, a decrease from 2016 when there were 24.

Additional highlights:

  • Men accounted for 94 percent of the work-related fatalities in Pennsylvania, similar to the 93-percent national share. (See table 4.) Transportation incidents made up 36 percent of the fatalities for men in Pennsylvania.
  • White, non-Hispanic workers accounted for 87 percent of those who died from a workplace injury in the state. Nationwide, this group accounted for 67 percent of work-related deaths.
  • Workers 25-54 years old accounted for 57 percent of the state’s work-related fatalities in 2017, similar to the 55 percent of on-the-job fatalities nationally.
  • Of the 172 fatally-injured workers in Pennsylvania, 77 percent worked for wages and salaries; the remainder were self-employed. The most frequent fatal event for wage and salary workers was transportation incidents; for self-employed workers, contact with objects and equipment was the most frequent fatal event.

Technical Note

Background of the program. The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), part of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Safety and Health Statistics (OSHS) program, compiles a count of all fatal work injuries occurring in the U.S. during the calendar year. The CFOI program uses diverse state, federal, and independent data sources to identify, verify, and describe fatal work injuries. This ensures counts are as complete and accurate as possible. For the 2017 national data, over 23,400 unique source documents were reviewed as part of the data collection process. For technical information and definitions for CFOI, please go to the BLS Handbook of Methods on the BLS website at www.bls.gov/opub/hom/cfoi/home.htm.

Federal/State agency coverage. The CFOI includes data for all fatal work injuries, even those that may be outside the scope of other agencies or regulatory coverage. Thus, any comparison between the BLS fatality census counts and those released by other agencies should take into account the different coverage requirements and definitions being used by each agency. More on the scope of CFOI can be found at www.bls.gov/iif/cfoiscope.htm and www.bls.gov/opub/hom/cfoi/concepts.htm.

Acknowledgments. BLS thanks the Pennsylvania Department of Health for their efforts in collecting accurate, comprehensive, and useful data on fatal work injuries. BLS also appreciates the efforts of all federal, state, local, and private sector entities that provided source documents used to identify fatal work injuries. Among these agencies are the Occupational Safety and Health Administration; the National Transportation Safety Board; the U.S. Coast Guard; the Mine Safety and Health Administration; the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (Federal Employees' Compensation and Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation divisions); the Federal Railroad Administration; the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration; state vital statistics registrars, coroners, and medical examiners; state departments of health, labor, and industrial relations and workers' compensation agencies; state and local police departments; and state farm bureaus.
