The survey shows that five out of the ten have died in traffic accidents or injuries associated with work. Two farmers died, one because he got a heavy object on top of him, the other when the tractor he drove rolled over. A Latvian citizen died whilst working in a tank aboard the Nordstar trawler which was on his way to Ålesund in June.
