The Bureau of Labor Statistics released information about on-the-job deaths and NYC's worker death rate was 14% higher in 2004 than in 2003, with 107 total. AM New York (PDF) had a number of stats: 29 of the deaths were homicides, "from police officers killed in the line of duty to bosses murdered by scheming employees to cashiers shot during robberies"; construction jobs are the most dangerous, with 27 deaths, followed by transportation ones (bike messengers, truck drivers) with 20 deaths; and the white collar deaths were mostly suicides. While these stats are alarming, they are peanuts next to stats from 1993, when 140 of the 191 workplace deaths were homicides.
