What is the information used for that I report on the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses?

The data collected on the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses is published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on both a state and a national level.  The data is used by policy makers in the business community as well as by government agencies and private individuals to define the nature and scope of job safety and health programs.  Employers and others use the data to measure the effectiveness of their internal safety programs by comparing individual establishment injury and illness incidence rates with state and national incidence rates for their particular industry.
