3 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) was implemented in 1991 by the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) as a cooperative venture between 32 states, New York City and the federal government. In 1992, the census covered all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The Illinois Department of Public Health, Division of Epidemiologic Studies, initiated the CFOI program in Illinois on July 1, The census monitors, with verification, all fatal work injuries, collecting information on the circumstances of each injury and on characteristics of each decedent. Highlights for Illinois In 1998 in Illinois, 216 occupational fatalities occurred, a 10 percent decrease from 1997 fatalities (n=240). Following are major findings from the 1998 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries in Illinois:! The self-employed and those working in family businesses accounted for 23 percent of occupational fatalities (see Table 2).! Men accounted for 96 percent of all occupational fatalities.! Workers older than 44 years of age accounted for 47 percent of the occupational fatalities (see Table 2).! Industrial classifications with the greatest proportion of fatalities were transportation/public utilities with 23 percent of the fatalities and construction with 16 percent. Agriculture was the third highest industrial classification with 13 percent of the fatalities (see Table 4).! Foreign-born workers accounted for 13 percent of all occupational fatalities, a higher proportion than their 11 percent share of the Illinois population.

4 ! Workers in the agriculture industry experienced an 18 percent decrease in occupational fatalities from 1997 to 1998 (33 to 28, respectively).! Homicides in the workplace decreased 26 percent from 1997 to 1998 (39 to 30, respectively) and self-inflicted violent acts decreased 43 percent during the same period (10 to 8 for 1997 and 1998, respectively).! In Illinois, transportation incidents were the leading fatal event for men with 34 percent (n=74) of the fatalities.! The leading fatal events for women were also transportation incidents with 56 percent (n=5) of the fatalities (see Figure 1).! Death certificates were researched for occupational illnesses in Illinois. The criteria, which has been used for the last three years, includes industrial and occupational classification as well as event and nature. Fatal illnesses increased in 1998 by 467 from 1997 results (n=1,072) (see Table 9). Chicago Metropolitan Area Highlights The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries recorded 120 fatal workplace injuries in the Chicago metropolitan area counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will. Of these, 26, or about 22 percent, were the result of homicides. Other major findings included! In the Chicago area, the industry with the greatest proportion of fatalities was transportation with 27 percent (n=32). By occupational title, operators, fabricators, and laborers accounted for the largest proportion of fatalities with 42 percent (n=50).! The self-employed and those working in family businesses accounted for 18 percent (n=21) of all Chicago-area occupational fatalities. 2

5 ! Transportation incidents were the leading fatal event in the Chicago area for both men and women with 31 percent (n=37) and 60 percent (n=3), respectively. BACKGROUND In the past, national fatality estimates have varied widely from 3,000 to 11,000 deaths per year. 1 Differences in coverage, in definitions of a work fatality, and in estimation methodologies have contributed to the variations in these estimates. The National Academy of Sciences and the Keystone Dialogue Group a evaluated work injury and illness statistics in the United States in The National Academy of Sciences panel recommended that BLS work with state agencies to compile complete rosters of occupational fatalities from administrative sources, such as death certificates and workers' compensation claims. 2 This census would include workrelated deaths of the self-employed, workers younger than 16 years of age, workers on small farms, and other worker groups not commonly reported in current statistical systems. In response to this and other recommendations, BLS developed the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries as part of a broad redesign of its safety and health statistics program. 3 METHODS Deaths Due to Occupational Injuries CFOI uses multiple data sources such as death certificates, workers compensation report claims, medical examiner reports, and other available federal and state administrative records to compile a complete and verified count of fatal workplace injuries. It collects reports of all traumatic occupational fatalities, including those injuries to the self-employed, laborers on small farms, government workers, and a Keystone Dialogue Group is a non-profit organization that facilitates consensus-building dialogues among business, labor, and government on public policy issues. 3

6 other workers difficult to identify from a single data source on workplace fatalities. Table 1 shows the number and percentage of documents used as sources in Illinois. A total of 827 documents were used to identify and verify 216 occupational fatalities in To ensure an accurate count of fatal occupational injuries, CFOI requires that the work relationship be substantiated by two or more independent source documents or by a source document and a follow-up questionnaire. Source documents are matched using the decedent's name and other information to avoid duplicate counts. Non-response to the questionnaire and inconsistent data require further follow-up by telephone. At the end of the collection period, fatalities with only one source document are reviewed by BLS. The fatality is included in the database only if the state and BLS agree there is sufficient information on the source document to determine that the fatality was indeed work-related. Not all fatal injuries in the workplace meet the BLS case definition, or are in scope. To be considered in scope, a fatality must occur to an employee who works for pay, compensation, profit, or as a volunteer at the time of the event. The employee also must be engaged in a work activity or present at the site of the incident as a requirement of the job. A work relationship exists if an event or exposure results in fatal injury or illness to a person 1) on the employer's premises and the person was there to work; or 2) off the employer's premises and the person was there to work, or the event or exposure was related to the person's work or status as an employee. Work is defined as duties, activities, or tasks that produce a product or result; are done in exchange for money, goods, services, profit, or benefit; and are legal activities in the United States. 4

7 Deaths Due to Occupational Illnesses The census also conducts surveillance of deaths related to occupational illnesses. Data can be used to investigate known workplace hazards as well as to generate new hypotheses that can be evaluated in subsequent epidemiologic studies. Surveillance of deaths related to occupational illnesses is conducted using death certificates, federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports, and workers' compensation claim reports. No follow-up questionnaires or secondary source documents are solicited. Because the work relationship is not verified for occupational illnesses, the data are considered experimental. Death certificates are searched for cause of death and contributing causes of death due to occupational illnesses. Deaths resulting from angiosarcoma of the liver, skin cancer of the scrotum, mesothelioma, silicosis, asbestosis, and coal worker's pneumoconiosis are included. Heart attacks that occur either on the employer's premises or while at work also are included. Additionally, several other deaths are included when the occupation or industry is a known risk for a certain disease. For example, coal miners or glass factory workers with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or lung cancer are included in the census. CFOI staff continue to research scientific literature for associations between occupational exposures and disease. RESULTS Injury Fatality Counts and Proportions Besides comprehensive counts of fatal work injuries and the circumstances surrounding them, CFOI data provide information on the demographic characteristics of the workers. Table 2 presents a profile of occupational fatalities by socio-demographic characteristics for the U.S., Illinois, and the Chicago area. In Illinois, wage and salary workers represented 77 percent (n=167) of all occupational fatalities. 5

8 The self-employed experienced 23 percent (n=49) of all fatalities. Workers 25 to 54 years of age composed 67 percent (n=145) of all occupational fatalities, with workers 45 to 54 years of age experiencing 20 percent (n=44) of fatalities in this age classification. White workers accounted for 82 percent (n=178) of all occupational fatalities. Table 3 shows the number and percentage of fatal occupational injuries by occupation for the U.S., Illinois, and the Chicago area. Illinois operators, fabricators, and laborers experienced 39 percent (n=84) of all fatalities. This occupational category includes two subcategories that experienced 93 percent (n=76) of the fatalities: transportation and material-moving operations (n=54) and handlers, equipment cleaners, helpers, and laborers (n=22). Precision production, craft and repair occupations experienced 20 percent (n=43) of all occupational fatalities. Table 4 presents the number and percentage of fatal occupational injuries by industry, again for the U.S., Illinois, and the Chicago area. Industries with the greatest number of occupational fatalities included transportation and public utilities with 23 percent (n=49) and construction with 16 percent (n=34) of all fatalities. Within construction, the number was highest among special trades contractors (n=18). Table 5 shows the number and percentage of fatal occupational injuries by event or exposure for the three geographic areas. Transportation incidents, both highway and non-highway, comprised 36 percent (n=79) of all fatal occupational injuries in Illinois. Highway incidents made up 52 percent (n=41) of the transportation fatalities, while workers struck by vehicle accounted for 13 percent (n=10). Assaults and violent acts were 18 percent (n=38) of all occupational fatalities, with homicides accounting for 79 percent (n=30) of all assaults and violent acts. Table 6 shows the number and percentage of Illinois fatalities by industry and event. Workers in the retail, transportation, and service industries experienced 74 percent (n=29) of all the assaults and violent 6

9 acts committed (n=38). Transportation incidents accounted for 54 percent (n=15) of all agriculture workers killed (n=28). Falls accounted for 50 percent (n=17) of all construction industry fatalities (n=34). Table 7 presents the number of occupational fatalities by county. Forty-nine counties in Illinois had no occupational fatalities; 40 counties had less than three fatalities;12 counties had three to 11 fatalities; and Cook County, the heaviest populated county, had 94 occupational fatalities. Occupational Illness Fatalities A total of 1,539 workers died as a result of occupational illnesses in 1998, an increase of 467 over1997. The same guidelines used in 1997 were used in Table 8 presents the number and percentage of fatal occupational illnesses by selected characteristics of the decedents. Wage and salary workers had the greatest number of fatal occupational illnesses, as did men, workers years of age, white workers, and non-hispanic workers. Table 9 shows the number and percentage of fatal occupational illnesses by major occupation and industry. The occupation with the greatest number of fatalities was precision production, craft, and repair (n=577), while the industry with the greatest number of occupational illnesses was manufacturing (n=718). Table 10 presents the number and percentage of fatal occupational illnesses by event or exposure. Exposure to harmful substances or environments accounted for 68 percent (n=1,047) of all fatal occupational illnesses. Table 11 shows the number and percentage of fatal occupational illnesses by nature of illness and source of illness. The most prevalent illness was neoplastic tumors (n=1,064), while the most common source of illness was coal, natural gas, petroleum, and products not elsewhere classified (n=338). 7

10 DISCUSSION Many safety experts regard fatal work injuries as sentinel events, occurrences suggesting a failure in the use and application of preventive practices. 4 Unfortunately, the safety and health community has lacked the basic information needed to assess the full scope of these tragic events. The information compiled by the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries yields vital insights that may aid in preventing fatal on-the-job injuries. The Illinois database can assist users in generating fatality profiles for specific industries and populations (for example, self-employed or female workers) or in studying fatalities involving certain types of machinery (such as farm equipment) or events (for example, work activities at the time of contact with electric current). These studies can be used to identify existing workplace standards that require revision and to highlight areas where intervention strategies need to be developed to decrease the hazards in Illinois workplaces and thus increase the occupational safety of Illinois workers. 8

It is also used to record whether an anticipatory warrant/subpoena was served, denial of entry information, and information on cases that are terminated before becoming inspections. 2 OSHA 36 is a preinspection form used to record data pertaining to a fatality/catastrophe that occurs in an establishment under OSHA's or a state OSHA's jurisdiction. It is completed at the time the event is initially reported to OSHA. Its purpose is to provide OSHA with enough information on the event to determine whether to investigate. 3 OSHA 170 is used to record a summary of the results of investigations of all events involving fatalities, catastrophes, amputations, hospitalizations of two or more days, and significant publicity or property damage.
