Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII)
The annual Survey of Occupational Injuries and
Illnesses (SOII) is conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in
cooperation with participating states. The Nevada results for this survey are
published here. Additional results for the country and individual states
can be found at http://www.bls.gov/iif/.
To view the National News Releases go to http://www.bls.gov/iif/news.htm.
By clicking the link in the top, left corner labeled Nonfatal Occupational Injury Data, you will find two types of tables and charts: (1) The Annual Survey
Information which includes the injury and illness rates and numbers for certain
industries and case types; (2) Case and Demographics tables and charts which
show how injuries and illnesses are distributed by various demographic
characteristics and occupations.
Effective January 1, 2002, the Occupational
Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) revised its requirements for recording
occupational injuries and illnesses. Due to this revision, the
estimates from the 2002 survey are not comparable with those from prior years,
and the statistics for calendar year 2003 to present are far more detailed than
those previously available. In addition, table numbering is consistent
throughout the nation, which means that some tables for Nevada will start with
what appears to be out of sequence numbering. However, when viewed as a whole
with the rest of the statistics found at http://www.bls.gov/iif/, they are consistent. See the “Background
of the Survey” section on the BLS website for additional information.
Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI)
During 2016, the State of Nevada experienced 54 at-work fatalities from injuries.
In 1992, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in conjunction
with State agencies, developed the annual Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries
(CFOI). The Nevada results for this census are published here. Additional results for the country and individual states, as well as further
information on the CFOI, can be found at http://www.bls.gov/iif/.
By clicking the link in the top, left corner labeled Fatal Occupational Injury Data, you will find tables and/or charts detailing fatal occupational injuries
occurring in the state of Nevada broken down by type of industry, ownership,
event or exposure.
