In 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor issued new rules requiring employers to report severe workplace injuries and fatalities. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration defines a severe injury as a work-related hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye. The requirement was established to identify employers and industries where workers are most at risk and work to eliminate those risks.

During the 2015-2016 reporting period, OSHA registered 136 severe injury reports and 6 workplace fatalities in Maine.

In addition to dozens of lost fingers, there were also 5 injuries resulting from slips and falls on ice, 3 fork truck mishaps and one wakeboarding accident at a summer camp.
