OSHA Releases 2023 Injury and Illness Data

The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released 2023 injury and illness data collected under the agency’s new Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses regulations published in July 2023. SWACCA has been engaged on these regulations since OSHA published a proposed rule in March 2022 to amend its occupational injury and illness recordkeeping and reporting regulations.

The 2023 injury and illness data includes 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 high-hazard industries, like construction. 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.

More information about OSHA’s illness and injury recordkeeping and reporting requirements are available on OSHA’s website here.
