OSHA Releases Workplace Injury and Illness Information
For the first time, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has made work-related injury and illness data from 1996 to 2007 available in an online database searchable by establishment or industry-specific injury and illness data.
online database searchable by establishment or industry-specific injury and illness data.
Every year since 1996, OSHA has collected work-related injury and illness data from more than 80,000 employers. OSHA uses the data to calculate injury and illness incidence rates to guide its strategic management plan and to focus its Site Specific Targeting (SST) Program, which the agency uses to target its inspections.
Information available includes an establishment's name, address, industry, associated Total Case Rate (TCR), Days Away, Restricted, Transfer (DART) case rate, and the Days Away From Work (DAFWII) case rate. The data is specific to the establishments that provided OSHA with valid data through the 2008 data collection (collection of CY 2007 data). This database does not contain rates calculated by OSHA for establishments that submitted suspect or unreliable data.
