    Fatal Occupational Injuries--United States, 2005 - Journal of American Medical Association
    Transportation incidents resulted in the highest rate of fatal occupational injuries for six of the eight NORA sectors. Falls resulted in the highest rate in the construction sector, and contact with objects and equipment resulted in the highest rate in the manufacturing sector. Assaults and violent acts resulted in the second-highest rate for three sectors (trade, services, and health care and social assistance).

    Highway incidents resulted in the highest fatal occupational injury rate for both sexes. However, for men, a fall to a lower level (e.g., falling from a ladder, roof, or scaffold; falling down stairs or steps; or falling through a floor or roof surface) had the second-highest fatality rate; for women, workplace homicide had the second-highest rate. Rates by type of event or exposure were similar among age groups, with highway incidents accounting for the highest rate among all age groups. However, workers aged 65 years had the highest rate for all types of fatal events.
