How many fatal workplace injuries occur every year in the United States?

In 2012, there were 4,628 occupational fatalities in the United States, according to the most recent figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. 

That total represented the second-lowest annual total of such deaths since records for fatal injuries on the workplace were first compiled in 1992. Measured out, the percentages translated into 3.4 fatal injuries per 100,000 full-time workers.

Of the total number of occupational fatalities reported in 2012, 1,153 were due to work-related roadway accidents, which represented a 5 percent increase over the previous year. There were 806 fatal injuries in the construction sector in 2012, a total that was 9 percent higher than in 2011.
