A Boat Maintenance Crew Supervisor Dies of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning While Using a Gasoline-Powered Pressure Washer (938.08 KB)

On May 17, 2012, a 25-year-old boat maintenance crew supervisor died from carbon monoxide poisoning while using a gasoline-powered pressure washer to strip paint from a boat. On the day of the incident, he was supervising a crew using a pressure washer and disc grinders to remove old paint from the exterior of a 162-foot steel hulled fishing boat moored at a dock. The six crew members were working on the boat in different areas that were covered with plastic tarps in order to prevent paint chips and dust from entering the water.

Base and Tail Hold Machines Can Create Hazards on Haul Roads (503.51 KB)

Base machines and mechanical tail holds can leave holes in the road from digging buckets in or pushing dirt with blades. Turning tracked equipment can also create ruts or disturbed areas. The damaged road surface can create hazards for motor vehicles. A recent close call occurred when a hole left from a base machine in a haul road was not filled in sufficiently. The hole in the road from the bucket was soft. When a log truck drove over it, the front tire sank. If the truck had been traveling faster, the result could have been more serious, such as a roll-over.

Choker Setter Struck when Hung-up Turn Clears (382.03 KB)

In April 2018, a three man rigging crew was logging buncher piles on a flat area below an 80% slope near an RMA. They were about 850 feet from the landing. After the crew set a single choker on a four log pile, the rigging slinger cleared out into the RMA and the choker setter and hook tender cleared up the hill and under the skyline. The rigging slinger asked the choker setter and hook tender if they were in the clear and they answered that they were. As the turn started to move, the tops hung up in another pile next to it. Then the butts hung up on a stump directly below the choker setter and hook tender. As the lines tightened, the turn cleared from the stump and it swung up the hill and struck the choker setter.

Create and follow check-in procedures (509.34 KB)

In February 2018, a logging company owner was marking off a safe area around a sinkhole on the road. He was walking on what he thought was solid ground when the ground gave way suddenly. He fell 15 feet down into the sinkhole. He spent nearly 24 hours trapped in the hole before he was found by a coworker the next morning. Fortunately, he was not injured and was rescued without incident.

DOSH Compliance and Consultation Visits and Compensable Claims Rates in Washington State, 2015-2016 (630.47 KB)

Since 2002 the Safety & Health Assessment & Research for Prevention (SHARP) program of the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) has conducted annual analyses of the association between enforcement and consultation activities of the Washington State Division of Occupational Safety & Health (DOSH) and compensable claims rates. Most of these annual reports have shown that DOSH enforcement inspections at )018fixed-site)019 industry workplaces were associated with a decline in claims rates relative to those businesses that had no DOSH visits (Foley et al, 2012; SHARP Technical Reports 2007, 2013, 2015, 2016). But due to the greater volatility of claims rates at )018non-fixed-site)019 businesses and the small numbers of consultation visits satisfying our study selection criteria, several annual analyses did not find statistically significant changes among ,018non-fixed-site,019 businesses receiving enforcement visits or at business receiving only consultation visit(s) during the same evaluation periods.

Forklift Operator Dies When Crushed between Forklift Overhead Guard and Mast - Summary (381.24 KB)

In May of 2012, a 61-year-old longshore worker operating a forklift died when he was crushed between a forklift,019s mast and the operator cab overhead guard. The incident occurred when he left the forklift operator,019s seat and climbed over the operator,019s console and stood on the dash between the mast and the overhead guard so that he could presumably look into a bin elevated on the forklift,019s forks. He did not turn off the forklift engine. As he was standing on the dash, his right foot moved backward and contacted the mast tilt control lever on the console. This caused the mast to tilt back, crushing his torso between the mast cross member and the overhead guard.

Immediate Inpatient Hospitalizations for Work-Related Injury or Illness - Washington State, 2015 (1.79 MB)

Work-related injuries that result in an immediate inpatient hospitalization are severe, costly, and often lead to long term disability. Currently, both the Washington State Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) and the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) require employers to report workplace injuries resulting in inpatient hospitalizations (within 8 or 24 hours of injury, respectively). This report is the second in an annual series that characterizes the results of a unique surveillance system in Washington State created by linking hospital discharge data from Washington 019s Comprehensive Hospital Abstract Reporting System5 (CHARS) to Washington State workers)019 compensation (WC) records to identify immediate inpatient hospitalizations. For additional information, please see the initial report (2014 data), which describes the creation of this surveillance system and provides more detailed methods. The immediate inpatient work-related hospitalization surveillance system provides descriptive data regarding high risk industries, and results can be used to inform prevention efforts, to monitor trends over time, and to evaluate employer compliance with reporting regulations.

Logger Safety Initiative: Findings from the initial safety consultations (776 KB)

To improve the safety culture of the manual logging industry throughout Washington State, private landowners, the Washington Contract Loggers Association, logging companies, the Washington Department of Natural Resources, and the Washington Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) partnered to create the Washington State Logger Safety Initiative (LSI). Participation in LSI is voluntary. Employers who elect to participate are required to undergo an annual consultation with the L&I Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH). During the consultation, DOSH evaluates each cutter and logging side to document existing hazards and evaluate the employer,019s safety and health program. Here we present findings from consultations conducted for initial entry into the LSI program.

Washington State Occupational Health Indicators - Current Data (2010-present) (709.42 KB)

There are over 3 million workers in Washington State. Every year tens of thousands are injured or made ill on the job. These work-related injuries and illnesses have high human and economic costs, but can be prevented. Tracking these injuries and illnesses is the first step to understanding whether prevention methods are succeeding or need to be improved. Washington State researchers at the Department of Labor and Industries worked with the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) Occupational Health workgroup to develop a set of measures to track occupational injuries and illnesses. These measures are called )018occupational health indicators)019 (OHI) and are compiled yearly (because of time for data to develop and become available, there is about a 3-year lag; for 2018 CSTE OHI data is being collected for 2015). They are meant to provide an overview and general assessment of the occupational health status of Washington State.

Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders of the Back, Upper Extremity, and Knee in Washington State, 2006-2015: All Washington Industries (1.20 MB)

The intent of this report is to estimate the overall trends in workers019 compensation claims for work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) during the years 2006-2015. WMSDs are defined as non-traumatic soft-tissue injuries of the musculoskeletal system. The analyses of this report evaluate both the magnitude and the risk of WMSD claims. This report uses workers 019 compensation claims data from Washington State to examine the WMSD claim frequency, incidence rates, lost workdays, costs and industry distribution. Analyses were performed across 5 body areas: 1) the hand/wrist, 2) the elbow, 3) the shoulder, 4) the back, and 5) the knee. Analyses were also performed across 7 industry sectors: 1) Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing; 2) Construction; 3) Health Care and Social Assistance; 4) Manufacturing; 5) Services; 6) Transportation, Utilities and Warehousing and 7) Wholesale and Retail Trade.
