OSHA Releases 2023 Injury, Illness Data

April 19, 2024
Data is from 375,000 companies from Form 300A, and 850,000 from Form 300.

On April 18, OSHA released 2023 injury and illness data collected under the agency’s new Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses regulation published July 2023.

The data include specific information submitted by more than 375,000 establishments on OSHA Form 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. It also includes individual injuries and illnesses for employers with 100 or more employees in select high-hazard industries.

In addition, OSHA has posted partial data from more than 850,000 OSHA Form 300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses and Form 301 Injury and Illness Incident Report records.  

The agency said that providing access to injury and illness data will help identify unsafe conditions and workplace hazards that may cause occupational injuries and illnesses. "Recognizing these hazards will help identify ways to control or prevent them and reduce injuries and illnesses. This information will improve research on the occurrence, prevention and control of workplace hazards, injuries and illness types," OSHA said in a statement.

Over the last year, OSHA conducted extensive outreach through webinars, educational videos, social media, and monthly stakeholder emails to help employers understand their obligations and to properly submit 2023 data.

OSHA notes that it is taking additional steps to protect worker privacy by reviewing the remaining data for certain personally identifiable information and will make additional data publicly available following this review.
