State Trooper Thomas Clardy, 44, of Charlton, died March 16, 2016 in car crash. Kevin Corey, 56, an East Longmeadow landscaper, died May 23, 2016, struck by a falling tree. These are just three of the 62 workers who died on the job in 2016 in Massachusetts, representing the highest workplace fatality rate in the state in 10 years, according to a report released Thursday by MassCOSH, the Massachusetts Coalition for Occupational Safety and Health. Another eight firefighters died of work-related illnesses, a measure that is not available for people working in other fields. Al Vega, director of programs and safety for MassCOSH, worried that the high fatality rate is part of a trend. He said more companies today are using subcontractors, temp agencies or staffing agencies, and fewer companies have a unionized workforce. "In some cases, a lot of those agencies don't necessarily have all the adequate health and safety information or training for workers," Vega said. "Sometimes workers asked to do hazardous kinds of job may not have the necessary training." Worker advocates worry that the problem will only get worse as President Donald Trump rolls back workplace safety regulations implemented by former President Barack Obama.
