About IIF

The Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities (IIF) program at the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a wide range of information about workplace injuries and illnesses.

IIF data can be separated into fatal and nonfatal data. Nonfatal data is gathered through the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII), a survey sent to private and public sector establishments each year, while the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) provides a comprehensive count of all fatal workplace injuries.

  • Nonfatal data – detailed industry rates of workplace injuries and illnesses. Additional details on the worker being injured, including case circumstances and worker characteristics are available for cases requiring days away from work. [Additional information]
  • Fatal injury data – detailed information on fatal workplace injuries, including industry data, case circumstances, and worker characteristics. [Additional information]

More information on the history of the Bureau's Occupational Health and Safety Statistics (OSHS) program can be found in the Monthly Labor Review article The quest for meaningful and accurate occupational health and safety statistics.
