Investigation reveals many uncounted N.C. workplace deaths


A recent investigation by the Raleigh News & Observer found that the state of North Carolina reports and investigates only a fraction of deaths that occur in the workplace. Thus, the recent report from the North Carolina Labor Commission that the work-related death toll was the lowest since 2001 is based on only a partial count of actual workplace deaths.

Work-related deaths peaked in North Carolina in 2014


On-the-job injury or death will always be a hazard in certain dustries, but 2014 was an especially bad year for North Carolina workers. The number of work-related deaths in the state nearly doubled from 2013 to 2014. Twenty-three work place fatalities were reported in 2013, and in 2014, that number rose sharply to 44 deaths.

Avoiding heat-related work illnesses and death


Employers in North Carolina should understand when there are potential risks and dangers in the work environment. This is especially true for jobs that are more inherently dangerous. The construction industry has various potential risks and dangers, but if employers address these issues, work accidents and injuries could be reduced. By providing adequate training and safety equipment, the lives of the workers could be protected. Failure to do so could result in a fatal work accident.
