OSHA Releases 2023 Injury and Illness Data 

The Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) continues efforts to increase employer compliance. OSHA has released 2023 injury and illness data collected under the agency’s new Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses regulation published July 2023. 

The 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 select high-hazard industries. 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.  

Next Steps 

Employers should visit OSHA’s website to determine if they are subject to any of OSHA’s reporting requirements and ensure that if applicable, electronic submissions of any applicable forms (Forms 300, 301, and/or 300A) are submitted by March 2 each year. Employers may use OSHA’s ITA Coverage Application tool to determine if they are subject to OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements.
