Construction workers face numerous risks in the workplace. In addition to fatal injuries, construction workers suffer hundreds of thousands of nonfatal injuries each year.
This dashboard covers data from the OSHA Severe Injury Reports from 2015 through 2020. OSHA requires employers to report all severe work-related injuries, defined as an amputation, in-patient hospitalization, or loss of an eye. The requirement began on January 1, 2015, but may vary by state, because many states operate their own occupational safety and health programs. Since the reporting scope and case definitions in this OSHA data collection are different from the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, numbers reported in the dashboard are not comparable to other data products based on the SOII data.
The dashboard includes one map providing detailed information by State; and four bar charts serving as filters to allow user to select incidents by NAICS, Year, Event, and Source. More information on definitions and how to use the dashboard can be found in the information icon located to the right of the dashboard title. To download all data included in the dashboard, click on the “Export to Excel” button to the right of the dashboard title. The data included in the Excel file will be based on the filters applied.
This dashboard will be updated biannually. The next update is scheduled in Spring 2022. If you have questions or comments, please email email@example.com.
