Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses: Overview
The Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities (IIF) program provides annual information on the incidence 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 Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) is an establishment-based survey used to estimate incidence rates and counts of workplace injuries and illnesses. It also provides detailed case and demographic data for cases that involve one or more days away from work (DAFW) and for days of job transfer and restriction (DJTR) for select industries.
The Handbook of Methods also provides information on the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), available at https://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/cfoi/home.htm. CFOI collects and publishes a complete count of work-related fatal injuries and descriptive data on their circumstances.
