fatal work related injuries

Unfortunately across the world many people are involved in work in jury incidences and some of them are fatal.

Certain occupation sectors are more dangerous and thus more injuries occur to their workers. This is usually due to factors of the job. Workers may be exposed to hazardous chemicals, fumes and materials, work at heights, with heavy machinery, extreme weather conditions, noise and electricity , which all could cause harm to workers and even death.

Here we show how many fatal injuries have been caused in different work sectors within one working year. Also we have broke down in which geographic areas these fatal injuries have happened. Different areas of the country have different percentages of particular types of work. Some areas for example will have a higher share of mining and construction across their workers affecting the fatal injury rate.
