Fatality Assessment Control Evaluation (FACE)
NEW - Nebraska Fatal Injuries at Work -- 2003 Update

Fatality Assessment Control Evaluation (FACE)

The FACE Program focuses on identifying factors that increase the risk of work related fatal injuries. Identification of these factors will enable employers and employees to develop effective safety programs to prevent fatal injuries in the workplace.

The goal of this program is to show a measurable reduction in the number of traumatic workplace fatalities in Nebraska. FACE evaluators do not determine fault nor do they enforce compliance with state or federal occupational safety and health standards. Although the Nebraska Department of Labor FACE staff may conduct joint activities with the Federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Nebraska Department of Labor does not enforce OSHA regulations.

Employers are asked to provide information on the organization of their safety program and the events leading to an employee's death. Department of Labor FACE personnel will visit the site where the fatality occurred. This enables evaluators to recreate the sequence of events, and discuss the incident with witnesses. The FACE evaluation will be conducted as quickly and professionally as possible. In some cases, it may take several hours to complete the evaluation. FACE evaluators are, at all times, sensitive to the emotional stress of employees and employers involved in a work related fatality.

FACE summaries do not contain the names of victims, co-workers, employers addresses or accident sites. All information remains anonymous and completely confidential. No one other than the FACE evaluators will know how an individual responded to any questions. The FACE evaluators report will include recommen- dations on how to prevent similar fatalities. The report is distributed to employers, trade groups, and associations that may have an impact on preventing similar accidents from recurring. The information that is collected is summarized and entered into state and federal databases for analysis.

The FACE program is funded through a cooperative agreement between the Nebraska Department of Labor and the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH). Your cooperation and assistance in making this program a success are greatly appreciated.

For more information regarding the FACE program, please phone William Hetzler, Program Manager at 402-595-2960 or 1-800-627-3611 or write to:
