  3. 3. Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) Program Presentation Abstracts California FACE Update Hank Cierpich Abstract: This update highlights several recent California fatality investigations - and strategies that made prevention efforts more timely. Iowa FACE Update: Experts Engaged in Site Visit Using Cell-to-Internet Conferencing Murray D. Madsen, MBA Abstract: Pictures on cell phones, laptops with webcams, voice over internet provider (VOIP), conferencing with voice and video over the internet, these are all familiar technologies. However, video telephony, video conferencing via cell phone, is not yet mainstream in the U.S. Cellular and internet interconnectivity offers the potential to efficiently and effectively engage multiple experts in real time from their workstations with an investigator on-site in a remote locale. IA FACE will share its first configuration and experience with video over cell-to-internet conferencing. Massachussetts FACE Update Michael Fiore Abstract: MA FACE will provide an update to the group about the activities that MA FACE has been involved in since the last annual meeting. Michigan’s Focus on Fatal Falls: Factors, Fixes, and Follow-up Debra Chester Abstract: There were 875 work-related deaths for the six years of 2001-2006 in Michigan. One hundred twenty five (14.3%) of the deaths were a result of a fall. MIFACE will present the descriptive epidemiological data of work-related falls, highlighting fatal falls in the construction sector where 60% of the deaths from falls occurred. We will also present illustrative case studies, educational interventions, and implications for policy. New Jersey FACE Update Dan Lefkowitz Abstract: Since our last update at the meeting in Morgantown, WV, The NJ FACE program has continued working on case investigations, data analysis, and educational outreach. Specifically, we have had several types of fatality investigations including a machine-related incident at a NJ dock, a sanitation truck fatality, and a fall from a communications tower. Our surveillance and data analysis of non-fatal injuries in the NJ Hispanic population project culminated in a journal article submitted to the American Journal of Industrial Medicine, and we are completing a project on fatal and non-fatal injuries in the NJ fishing industry. We have recently completed the educational outreach to NJ airports, which included the Tail Stand Hazard Alert and survey.
  4. 4. Future NJ FACE plans include continued site investigations, fatal and non-fatal injury surveillance, and educational outreach to dock workers. New York FACE Update Julia Zhu Abstract: New York FACE Update: NY FACE will present program updates focusing on two new initiatives: 1. Preventing fatal injuries to loggers and other tree workers through partnering with "Game of Logging" in disseminating “Logging Safety-a Field Guide” and evaluating the usefulness of the Guide; and 2. Developing injury prevention training materials for the ski resorts through working with Ski Areas of New York (SANY), a trade association representing 40 ski areas in New York State. Oregon FACE Update: Danger in the Forests and on the Sea Gary Rischitelli Abstract: Oregon continues to experience a high number of traumatic occupational fatalities in logging and fishing. Our estimates suggest that they may be among the highest occupational fatality rates in the United States. We will describe the incidence, risk factors, and challenges surrounding these activities and our current research and intervention efforts, as well as suggest policy changes to reduce these events. Crane Safety in Washington Tom Sjostrom Abstract: Washington FACE will present a discussion of the new rules regarding Crane Safety in Washington State
