Workplace Injuries Drop 7% In 2011

A preliminary count of fatal work injuries for 2011 showed 4,609 deaths occurred at a workplace or work site. That is a small drop from the 4,690 fatalities reported in 2010, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The final 2011 statistics are expected to be released in April 2013.

So far, the key information obtained from the 2011 stats show that fatal construction injuries are down nearly 42 percent since 2006 and down seven percent in 2011 from 2010.

Violence and other injuries by people or animals accounted for 780 fatalities, or about 17 percent of fatal workplace injuries.

Fatalities for workers between ages 20 to 24 rose nearly 20 percent, while fatalities in workers older than 55 or younger than 18 decreased in that period.

Fatalities among non-Hispanic white workers decreased, but fatalities among African-American, non-Hispanic black and Latino workers increased in 2011.
