||An estimated 15.9 million people worked in the manufacturing sector in the United States during 2008, which accounted for approximately 10.9% of the employed workforce. In 2008, 411 manufacturing sector workers died from occupational injuries, of which 58 from falls, which comprised the third most important cause of occupational accident mortality after equipment and transport. Aimed at employers in manufacturing industries, this leaflet outlines the strategic goals of a partnership programme between NIOSH and participating enterprises aimed at identifying the most critical workplace issues related to fall accidents.
