These narratives summarize work-related incidents and list some requirements and recommendations that might have prevented them from occurring. They provide preliminary information about the incident to the interested community, similar to OSHA's Fatal Facts and MSHA's Fatalgrams. Labor and Industries hopes they are used for formal or informal educational opportunities to help prevent similar incidents.
