FACE Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation Program
The Kentucky Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program is an occupational fatality prevention and surveillance program of the Kentucky Department for Public Health and the Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center at the University of Kentucky. Kentucky is one of seven FACE states currently funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. The Kentucky FACE program has conducted surveillance of all occupational fatalities since 1994.
In addition to surveillance, Kentucky FACE staff members conduct on-site investigations of workplace fatalities, producing investigative reports and other training materials that contain targeted recommendations for workplace injury prevention.
