OSHA Safety and Health Practices Survey

Days Without Injury signOSHA has launched a voluntary survey of private sector employers on current safety and health practices. The survey may contact as many as 19,000 employers nationwide, asking questions about employers' current practices with regard to safety and health management in their workplaces.
 
The survey will include all industries under OSHA jurisdiction and employers of all sizes. Respondents will receive a paper copy of the survey to complete, but they can choose to take the survey online. The goal of the survey is to develop industry-specific, statistically accurate estimates of current prevalence of a variety of baseline safety and health practices. Survey results will help OSHA to better design future rules, compliance assistance and outreach efforts.
 
OSHA also proposes to conduct case study interviews with employers in agriculture and state and local governments.
