OSHA Workplace Injury / Illness Data Now Available Online

For the first time, work-related injury and illness data from more than 80,000 employers is available in a searchable online database. OSHA collected the data since 1996, but only now can the public easily look at establishment or industry-specific injury and illness information.
"Making injury and illness information available to the public is part of OSHA's response to the administration's commitment to make government more transparent to the American people," said David Michaels, Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA. "This effort will improve the public's accessibility to workplace safety and health data and ensure the Agency can function more effectively for American workers."
Available information includes an establishment's name, address, industry, associated Total Case Rate, Days Away/Restricted/Transfer case rate and Days Away From Work case rate. OSHA uses the data to calculate injury and illness incidence rates to guide its efforts and to focus its Site Specific Targeting (SST) Program, used to target inspections.
