Report: 43 Killed On The Job In W.Va. In 2011
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) â¿¿ A new labor union report says 43 workers were killed on the job in 2011 in West Virginia, down from 95 the previous year that included a mine blast that killed 29.
According to the report by the AFL-CIO, there were 4,693 workplace deaths nationwide in 2011, down by only three from the year earlier.
The report also notes that more than 3.8 million workers across all industries experienced work-related illnesses and injuries.
The union says that after years of steady declines, rates have been essentially unchanged. They say that means greater efforts are needed to reduce job injuries and deaths.
