Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII)
The Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) program provides annual information on the rate and number of work-related injuries and illnesses, and how these statistics vary by industry, geography, and other characteristics.
Injuries and illnesses logged by employers conform with definitions and recordkeeping guidelines set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), U.S. Department of Labor. Under those guidelines, nonfatal cases are recordable if they are occupational illnesses or if they are work-related injuries that involve lost work time, medical treatment other than first aid, restriction of work or motion, loss of consciousness, or transfer to another job. Employers keep counts of injuries separate from illnesses and also identify for each whether a case involved any days away from work or days of restricted work activity, or both, beyond the day of injury or onset of illness.
