The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released 2023 injury and illness data collected under its new Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses regulation. The data release includes:

  • Information submitted by more than 375,000 employers on OSHA Form 300A, Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses.
  • Individual injuries and illnesses for employers with 100 or more employees in selected high-hazard industries.
  • 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

OSHA will use the information to identify conditions that may cause occupational injuries and illnesses and improve research on the occurrence, prevention and control of workplace hazards. The agency said it will continue its recordkeeping enforcement efforts by identifying establishments that failed to submit the required data. It is also taking steps to protect employee privacy by reviewing data for personally identifiable information before releasing it to the public.
