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. These documents are available in portable document format (PDF).  

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.
