CONN-OSHA Statistics
Fatal Injury Data for 2009

Since 1992, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has performed The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) to document fatal workplace injuries.  On average, Connecticut loses 40 workers each year to workplace injuries. By participating in this study, CONN-OSHA is striving to reduce workplace fatalities to ensure every employee returns home to his or her family each day.

In 2009

  • Thirty-four workers in Connecticut lost their lives to workplace injuries.

  • Assaults and violent acts claimed the lives of 13 workers (38 percent). Six of these deaths were suicides.

  • Twenty-eight (93 percent) of the deceased workers were men.

  • Seven (23 percent) of the deceased workers were self-employed.

  • Preliminary national numbers show a total loss of 4,340 workers. This was the lowest recorded total since the program began in 1992.
