OSHA Releases 2022 Injury and Illness Data

Mar 31, 2023

OSHA has published 2022 injury and illness data based on reports by more than 300,000 establishments. The Injury Tracking Application data is part of the agency's electronic recordkeeping requirements for employers who were required to submit OSHA Form 300A information by March 2, 2023.

OSHA believes that providing access to these data helps identify unsafe conditions and workplace hazards that may cause occupational injuries and illness, which is the first step in reducing worker injuries and illnesses.

The data also provide valuable insights to help employers make informed decisions. "Recordkeeping provides a road map to where and why injuries and illnesses occur and where improvements are needed," says Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Doug Parker.

Annual electronic submissions are required from establishments with 250 or more employers that must maintain OSHA injury and illness records, and establishments with 20 to 249 employees classified in specific industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses.
