The Storm Events Database consists of three files for each year: i) an event-details file with information about the weather event and the respective event narratives, ii) a fatality
file with details about each death resulting from the events, and iii) a location file with geographic information about the location of the event.
Compared to the actual fatality
rate of 18.4 per 10, 000 motor vehicles in 2003, this implies a reduction of 89%, a very ambitious target; see Table 1.
Annual and overall fatality
rates were also calculated by event type according to the Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System and by company type using NAICS.
"Pedestrian bridges constructed on five main roads are Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, Umm Suqeim Road, Al Rebat Road, Al Asayel Road and First Al Khail Road have recorded zero fatality
following the installation of footbridges in 2013 and 2014, compared to seven fatalities on those roads before the installation of pedestrian bridges, whereas the number of pedestrian-related accidents on the same roads dropped from 19 to 9," he said.
In 2011, CFOI reported the occupational fatality
rate in Alaska as 11.1 per 100,000 workers; that's a little over three times the US average of 3.5 for the same time period.
rates in those countries are much lower.
Plotting the fatalities per 100,000 population on a graph for the years 2008 to 2013, it shows the upward trend in fatality
rates between 2012 and 2013.
"New Hampshire may have the distinction of having the lowest workplace fatality
rates in the country, but our families and communities are still faced with the reality that workplaces can pose real and tenable threats to the lives and wellbeing of our workers," said MacKenzie.
Death in large numbers; the science, policy, and management of mass fatality
This equated to a fatality
rate of 21.8 due to the much larger workforce in this category.
Sixty-three pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents from 2000 through 2009, for a yearly fatality
rate of 1.9 per 100,000 residents.
