Trump Shamefully Erases Data On Worker Deaths From OSHA Website

The data on worker deaths have been scrubbed from the OSHA website, as worker safety protections are under attack from the Trump administration.

Politico reported, “For the past several years, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration had maintained a running list of workers killed on the job — including the date, name and cause of death — near the top of its home page. The list included every worker death reported to OSHA, regardless of whether the company was issued a citation. On Friday, the box on the home page disappeared and was replaced with information on how companies can voluntarily cooperate with OSHA to reduce safety risks. That information was available before but is now displayed more prominently. The new fatality list, buried on an internal page of the website, does not include incidents where a worker was killed if the company was not cited for violations.” read more
