In continuation of the tradition begun at Jordan Barabâs Confined Space blog, Tammy has posted another edition of the Weekly Toll: Death in the American Workplace at her Weekly Toll blog. It gives short writeups on 81 workplace deaths, including the following:
- Eric Jones, a 34-year-old Burlington, Wisconsin resident who fell 90 feet from the basket of a utility truck while repairing ice-damaged transmission lines.
- Mahendrabhai Gordham Omar Patela, 48, who was shot during a robbery of his Fort Mills, South Carolina store.
- Admont J. Znotin, a 43-year-old carpenter from Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts who died from carbon monoxide fumes.
Read the full descriptions of these and other workplace deaths here. Itâs an excellent reminder of how much work we still have to do on occupational health and safety.
