Before OSHA was created 43 years ago, an estimated 14,000 workers were killed on the job every year. Today, workplaces are much safer and healthier, going from 38 fatal injuries a day to 12. But there is still much work to be done.

Fatality and Catastrophe Investigation Summaries, (OSHA 170 form), are developed after OSHA conducts an inspection in response to a fatality or catastrophe. OSHA data provides accident investigation information, including details regarding the injuries and fatalities which occurred, events leading to the incident, causal factors, and textual summaries of the accident.

This data set reflects the 677 events reviewed and released to the public via the Department of Labor. This subset of fatal accidents represents events where complete information regarding the event and injury was available.
