FARGO — North Dakota once again had one of the highest per-capita rates of on-the-job deaths in 2009, according to a new report.
The state’s 25 workplace fatalities in 2009 translated into a rate of 7.2 deaths per 100,000 workers, the report by the AFL-CIO shows.
North Dakota had the second-most deadly per-worker rate in the nation, tying with Louisiana and behind only the 10.8 deaths per 100,000 in Montana. It was more than double the national average of 3.3.

The push for increased production, an influx of new workers as older, more experienced workers retire, reduced staffing levels, growing use of subcontracting and outsourcing, mandatory overtime and changes in technology and work processes all pose a threat to workers’ safety and health.
