Colorado Workplace Deaths in 2009 are lower
The Denver Business Journal is reporting that Colorado had fewer workplace deaths in 2009. The last time we had so few deaths was in 1998. My concern is that these statistics tell us nothing about why this is the situation. Are we safer in the workplace? Is the economy, unemployment and loss of many jobs to overseas sources leaving us with less employees? The good news is that deaths are down. The actual records for Colorado with a breakdown are here. Just to compare here are the figures for 2007 and for 2005.
