The illustrated fatality and accident reports linked from this page are the Safety Notes pages extracted from OR-OSHA Safety & Health Resource newsletter. They are sorted into broad categories and displayed most recent first.
The dates that appear next to the descriptions are the dates the reports were published in OR-OSHA Safety & Health Resource, not the date of the incident.
Due to the time involved in reporting and investigating workplace fatalities and accidents, there can be substantial time lags between the incident and publication of the report on this Web site. If you have questions about specific workplace incidents, please contact the OR-OSHA Enforcement Section, (800) 922-2689.
