Labor Statistics Bureau Bulletin 2590. October 2007. Provides data on work-related injuries and illnesses in private industry for 2005.  

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS, the Bureau) reports the number and frequency of work-related fatal injuries and nonfatal injuries and illnesses each year. The Bureau also provides detailed information on the circumstances of the injuries and illnesses and on the characteristics of the affected worker. These data come from two programs: the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) and the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII).

The CFOI, administered by the Bureau in conjunction with the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and New York City, compiles detailed information on all work-related fatal injuries occurring in the United States. In an effort to compile counts that are as complete as possible, the CFOI uses diverse sources to identify, verify, and profile fatal work injuries. Source documents such as death certificates, news accounts, workers’ compensation reports, and Federal and State agency administrative records are cross-referenced to gather key information about each workplace fatality.

The SOII produces data on work-related nonfatal injuries and illnesses. These data identify the industrial, occupational, and worker groups having a relatively high risk of work-related injuries and illnesses. This survey is made possible through the cooperation of participating State agencies and nearly 200,000 business establishments that provide information on workplace injuries and illnesses to the Bureau. State agencies collect and verify most of the data provided. BLS field offices collect and verify data from nonparticipating States.


This report would be useful to business leaders wishing to improve employee safety measures, public policymakers involved with improving employee safety, job seekers looking for information about the risks involved with certain jobs, and students and teachers who wish to learn about national labor statistics related to workplace injury and how the Bureau of Labor Statistics operates.
