In Texas, the futures’ so bright ya gotta wear shades. That is the model the GOP wants nationwide. The boot of sanity off the neck of malignant unfettered money making polluting job creators. Un-taxed and un-regulated and un-responsible. Welcome to the past. It’s your future.

One would expect then that Texas would lead the nation in the rate of employee fatalities. They don’t. Not by a long ways.

Texas’ totals are high, Pegula said, “because it’s a very large state.” Texas, California, Florida and New York have some of the largest labor forces in the U.S.

Seeking a way to account for that, we took each state’s 2011 raw numbers of deaths in the four categories Marston tabbed, added them together, then divided by the average number of workers employed in the state in 2011 per the federal bureau.Texas ranked 18th, with a rate of 1.7 such deaths per 100,000 workers. Observing that the five states with the “worst” rates all employed fewer than 1 million people in 2011, we checked to see how Texas fared among states employing more than 1 million. The answer: 10th place.

“Worst” among all 50 states were Montana (3.4 deaths per 100,000 workers), North Dakota (3.3), West Virginia (3), Alaska (3) and New Mexico (2.8). “Worst” among states with more than 1 million employed were Arkansas (2.6), Louisiana (2.3), Kansas (2.3), Missouri (2.1) and Kentucky (2)


State Fatality Comparisons
In 2012, North Dakota led the country with the highest fatality rate (17.7 per 100,000 workers)—
the highest ever recorded for North Dakota𠅏ollowed by Wyoming (12.2), Alaska (8.9),
Montana (7.3) and West Virginia (6.9).
The lowest state fatality rate (1.4 per 100,000 workers) was reported in Massachusetts, followed
by Rhode Island (1.7), Connecticut (2.1), and New Hampshire and Washington (2.2).
Twenty-one states saw an increase in either the rate and/or the number of fatalities between 2011 and 2012. Notably, compared with 2011 baseline numbers, 103 additional workers were killed in Texas in 2012, 25 in Wisconsin, 22 in Virginia and 21 in North Dakota.
In 2012, a number of states experienced significant increases in fatality rates from their 2011 rates. New Hampshire experienced an 83% increase, followed by North Dakota (43%), Vermont (35%), Nebraska (33%), Wisconsin (21%) and Texas (20%). It should be noted that the large increases in fatality rates of New Hampshire and Vermont largely were due to the small number of fatalities that occurred in those states. The number of fatalities reported in New Hampshire in 2012 was 14, up from the nine deaths reported in 2011; the number of fatalities reported in Vermont in 2012 was 11, up from eight deaths reported in 2011.
Among all of the states, North Dakota stands out as an exceptionally dangerous and deadly place to work. The state’s job fatality rate of 17.7/100,000 workers is alarming. It is more than five times the national average and is one of the highest state job fatality rates ever reported for any state. Workplace deaths in the state have been increasing. The fatality rate more than doubled from a rate of 7.0/100,000 in 2007 to a rate of 17.7/100,000 in 2012, and the number of workers
killed on the job increased from 25 to 65. In recent years, the increase in job deaths has accelerated, with 30 deaths in 2010, 44 deaths in 2011 and 65 deaths in 2012. The latest data for North Dakota also show a major increase in fatalities among Latino workers in the state, with 12
deaths reported, compared with three Latino worker deaths in 2011. All but one of the Latino workers killed in 2012 were immigrants.
