The latest statistics from the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry show that 154 workers died on the job during 2008. These deaths occurred because of falls, vehicle accidents, exposure to toxic fumes and unsecured equipment. Each was a tragedy, which my colleague Emily Mapp Brannon notes in her latest blog post to the Norfolk Injuryboard.
