New Hampshire OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses
According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in New Hampshire was in the production, transportation, and material moving occupations (Source). The main type of these fatalities is the vehicle backover (i.e., when a vehicle backs up and strikes a worker behind the vehicle).
For more information on backovers, OSHA's Preventing Backovers webpage provides information about the hazards of backovers; solutions that can reduce the risk or frequency of these incidents; articles and resources; and references to existing regulations.
As with most states, the leading causes of private sector worker deaths (excluding highway collisions) in the construction industry were falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between.
Source: OSHA Common Statistics Summaries
Falls deaths are preventable by a safety training class that covers 29 CFR 1926.500 - Subpart M – Fall Protection and deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards.
