A dozen workers die almost every day in the U.S. as a result of a traumatic injury on the job. In order to identify the factors that contribute to these fatal injuries, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducts investigations through its Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program.
