The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services reported Thursday, that the number of occupational fatalities fell last year from the year prior. 

The state of Wyoming saw a decrease of 12% in the number of deaths in occupational fatalities. 

The number fell from 33 to 29. 

Some people's first thought may be that businesses are increasing safety precautions, but according to workforce services, there is not always a direct relationship between workplace fatalities and workplace safety.
