The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released 2023 injury and illness data collected under its Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses regulation. This data includes information from over 375,000 establishments on OSHA Form 300A, focusing on work-related injuries and illnesses. It also includes individual injury and illness data for employers with 100 or more employees in high-hazard industries. OSHA has posted partial data from over 850,000 OSHA Form 300 and Form 301 records, aiming to identify unsafe conditions and hazards to prevent future incidents. OSHA is reviewing data for personally identifiable information to protect worker privacy and plans to release additional data publicly after this review.

GCCA joined other organizations in submitting comments on the proposed rule in June 2022. These comments cautioned OSHA that “electronic submission and public posting of this data serves only to put employers at risk for improper disclosure, mischaracterization of the data and release of sensitive employer as well as employee information. Smaller entities are particularly vulnerable to release of such information, where mischaracterization of data can irreparably harm their business and individual employee information may be easier to ascertain.”
