Tammy has posted another edition of the Weekly Toll: Death in the American Workplace at her Weekly Toll blog. It gives short writeups of 134 workplace deaths, including the following:
- Fernando Jimenez Gonzalez, 18, drowned in a vat of sulfuric acid at the Redwood City, California circuit board manufacturing facility where he worked; he is believed to have fallen into the vat after having been overcome by fumes.
- Morris W. Moore, an 80-year-old farmer from Humboldt, Tennessee, died from injuries sustained when a tractor fell on him.
- Dianne Freeman-Green, 47, was shot during an attempted robbery at the Newport News, Viginia restaurant where she worked.
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.
