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, 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.

This dashboard covers data from the OSHA Severe Injury Reports from 2015 through 2021. The dashboard includes one map providing detailed information by State; and four bar charts serving as filters to allow user to select incidents by Detailed SubsectorYearEvent, and Source, as well as a dashboard filter to look at States/Territories.

Information on specific charts and instructions for dashboard use 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 in Fall 2022. If you have questions or comments, please email
