Department of Labor releases 2023 injury, illness data

Agency continues effort to increase employer compliance

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has released 2023 injury and illness data collected under the agency’s new Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses regulation published July 2023.

The data include specific information submitted by more than 375,000 establishments on OSHA Form 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. It also includes individual injuries and illnesses for employers with 100 or more employees in select high-hazard industries.

In addition, OSHA has posted 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 records.  

Providing access to injury and illness data will help identify unsafe conditions and workplace hazards that may cause occupational injuries and illnesses. Recognizing these hazards will help identify ways to control or prevent them and reduce injuries and illnesses. This information will improve research on the occurrence, prevention and control of workplace hazards, injuries and illness types.

Over the last year, OSHA conducted extensive outreach through webinars, educational videos, social media, and monthly stakeholder emails to help employers understand their obligations and to properly submit 2023 data. The agency will continue its recordkeeping enforcement efforts by identifying establishments that failed to submit the required data.

OSHA is taking additional steps to protect worker privacy by reviewing the remaining data for certain personally identifiable information and will make additional data publicly available following this review.
