Maine Occupational Fatality Reporting (OFR) Program
The Occupational Injury Reporting (OFR) Program is a state funded initiative that uses research methods from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) FACE program. The Maine Department of Labor began the OFR program in 2003, and new reports are available on this site as we complete them.
OFR evaluations study fatal occupational injuries, identify factors that contribute to these fatalities and develop recommendations for preventing similar deaths.
OFR is a research program. Researchers do not enforce compliance with State or Federal occupational safety and health standards and do not determine fault or blame.
Maine also collects data on fatal workplace injuries under the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries program.
