According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Acute trauma at work remains a leading cause of death and disability among U.S. workers. Furthermore, a review of Texas death certificates for 1982 identified 710 deaths associated with occupational injuries.

During the period from 1980 through 1995, at least 93,338 workers in the U.S. died as a result of trauma suffered on the job, for an average of about 16 deaths per day (NIOSH). The Bureau of Labor Statistics (Department of Labor) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) has identified 5,915 workplace deaths from acute traumatic injury in 2000. BLS also estimates that 5.7 million injuries to workers occurred in 1997 alone; while NIOSH estimates that about 3.6 million occupational injuries were serious enough to be treated in hospital emergency rooms in 1998.
