OSHA Is Making Injury Data Public

June 21, 2016

OSHA will soon be providing the public with big data regarding workplace injuries and illnesses. This data may serve to analyze and reduce risk factors around work sites and offices. In prior years, OSHA has made available information regarding workplace fatalities and their causes, but this will be the first time that widespread and comprehensive injury data is released. It’s believed that releasing this injury data will not only provide more data points for those attempting to minimize employee injury, but will also encourage employers to better control injuries and illnesses on site.
