35 on-the-job deaths in Oregon workers’ comp system in 2018

Thirty-five people covered by the Oregon workers’ compensation system died on the job in 2018, according to preliminary figures issued Tuesday by the Department of Consumer and Business Services.

Last year’s figure was the same as in 2017 and the highest total in the last five years. The 2018 report is preliminary, so county-level data is not yet available.
