Work Injury and Illness by State

Nonfatal work-related injury and illness data are collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) through the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) program. SOII estimates the number and rate of workplace injuries and illnesses based on recordkeeping logs kept by employers.

These records reflect not only the year’s injury and illness experience, but also the employer’s understanding of which cases are work-related under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordkeeping guidelines. Although SOII uses OSHA’s recordkeeping guidelines to facilitate data collection, it is not administered by OSHA.

The number of states for which SOII data are available varies from year to year due primarily to changes in state participation in SOII. Non-participating states are displayed as blank on the map. Among participating states for which estimates are available, the sample sizes often are not sufficient to generate estimates at the same level of detail available from the national estimates.
