Fatality/Serious Injury Investigation Stories


These short, narrated presentations depict real events where the investigating safety and health inspectors describe briefly what happened, how the workers were killed or injured, and how the incidents could have been prevented.

These presentations are developed by the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I), Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) to alert employers, labor groups, and employees to potential hazards associated with specific work activities. The information provided includes suggested guidance on how to avoid workplace hazards and describes relevant mandatory safety and health rules, but creates no new legal obligations. Additional rules may apply to similar workplace situations based on incident-specific conditions
