The Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Wednesday unveiled a new Web site that lists fatality and catastrophe reports by companies across the nation.
The federal agency keeps logs of all of the reported worker fatalities and work place incidents that result in the injury of more than three workers. It keeps weekly lists of the incidents along with short synopses of how the injuries or deaths occurred.
The OSHA fatality log website has full logs that are updated each week.
The online database gives companies an incentive to take steps to avoid such accidents, and gives safety directors access to information that identifies common hazards around the country, according to the OSHA announcement.
