Occupational Health and Safety online has posted an article about the Fatality Map. CPWR’s Executive Director Pete Stafford, from the article:

“The map offers a chilling graphic portrayal of the terrible toll these accidents take on the men and women of our industry. Almost every workday a construction worker somewhere in the United States dies as a result of a fall; such a tragedy probably unfolded not far from your home,” Stafford wrote in an email from the center about the maps. He asked visitors to the campaign’s website and the maps page to share them with friends, colleagues, and family members to raise public awareness “about the unacceptable number of workplace accidents that claim our fellow Americans in the building trades.”
