    Many occupational deaths in Indiana caused by traffic wrecks - AP, The Wabash Plain Dealer
    Also in 2003, 14 people were killed by falls - the leading cause of death in the construction industry. Rivera said the state is stepping up inspection of residential construction sites and has implemented a new safety training program to reduce the number of falling deaths.

    Fourteen people were killed by homicide at the workplace in 2003, and homicide was the No. 2 killer of women in the workplace, behind transportation accidents. The number of homicides at work has declined nearly every year since 1997, when 31 people were killed on the job.
    Workers were also killed in 2003 by equipment (10), suicide (9), electrocution (5) and fires or explosions (4).
