Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries: Overview
The Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities (IIF) program provides annual information on the rate and number of work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatal injuries, and how these statistics vary by incident, industry, geography, occupation, and other characteristics. The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) collects and publishes a complete count of work-related fatal injuries and descriptive data on their circumstances.
The Handbook of Methods also provides information on the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) at https://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/soii/home.htm. SOII is an establishment-based survey used to estimate incidence rates and counts of workplace injuries and illnesses.
