Tammy has posted another edition of the Weekly Toll: Death in the American Workplace at her Weekly Toll blog. It gives short writeups on 41 workplace deaths, including the following:

* Wendall Anderson, 58, of Indianapolis was shot outside the Kroger grocery store where he had worked for 30 years.
* Duane Tirrell, a 53-year-old farmer from Charlotte, Michigan, was struck by a semi-tanker while driving his tractor.
* Juan Amedano, a 30-year-old construction worker from Brooklyn, New York, was killed in a trench collapse.

Read the full descriptions of these and other workplace deaths here. It’s an excellent reminder of how much work we still have to do on occupational health and safety.
