Tammy has posted another edition of the Weekly Toll: Death in the American Workplace at her Weekly Toll blog. It gives short writeups of 88 workplace deaths, including the following:

  • Joe Shephard, 36, of London, KY died when the construction trench he was working in collapsed.
  • Maria De Losangeles, 48, of Mesa, AZ was working a state highway litter-pickup detail when she was struck and killed by a car.
  • Robert Leavitt, 51, of Hartford, ME was tending one of his fields when his tractor rolled over on him and killed him.

Read the full descriptions of these and other workplace deaths here. It’s an excellent reminder of how much work we still have to do on occupational health and safety.
