Data Dashboards

Severe Injury Dashboard

Construction remains one of the country’s most dangerous industries. In addition to fatal injuries, construction workers suffer hundreds of thousands of nonfatal injuries each year. Since the start of 2015, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has required employers under OSHA jurisdiction to report all severe work-related injuries, defined as an amputation, in-patient hospitalization, or loss of an eye. Reporting of severe injuries can vary by state because many do not fall under federal OSHA jurisdiction due to operating their own occupational safety and health programs, which have different reporting systems.

Severe injury data are from the OSHA Severe Injury Reports. The dashboard includes severe injuries in construction by state, detailed subsector, event, and source.

Dashboard instructions and information on filters, charts, and definitions are included in the information icon Data Dashboard information icon located to the right of the dashboard title.

You can download the data behind the Dashboard as a spreadsheet.

This dashboard will be updated biannually. The next update is scheduled for Spring 2023. If you have questions or comments, please email datacenter@cpwr.com.
