Occupational Injuries & Illnesses and Fatalities
Occupational Injuries and Illnesses
The Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) is the largest nationwide data collection of worker injury statistics. These reports provide statistical information on work related injuries and illnesses (excluding first aid) collected from employers, OSHA, and Worker's Compensation records. This information helps pinpoint the causes of work injuries and is used to create safety legislation, set insurance policy rates, improve worker safety programs and compare injury rates across industries.
Fatal Occupational Injuries
These reports are a complete study of work-related fatalities that occurred in Wisconsin regardless of coverage by OSHA or Worker's Compensation (WC) using a wide variety of reports (death certificates, WC, Coroners/Medical Examiners, OSHA, etc.) This information helps to promote safer work practices through better training, inform workers of safety hazards, and assess and improve safety standards.
