One fatality is too many, but there’s good news from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS): the U.S. workplace fatality rate set a record low in 2013, dropping to 3.3 deaths for every 100,000 full-time equivalent workers. This is the lowest since 2006.

In announcing the statistics, BLS noted that private construction had the highest count of fatal injuries in 2013 (828), but the agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting sector had the highest fatal work injury rate.
