Occupational Safety Health Statistics (OSHS)

The Montana Occupational Safety & Health Statistics (OSHS) Program of the Montana Department of Labor and Industry works in coordination with the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) to conduct surveys on workplace injuries and worker health. Data is collected and reported annually through the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) and the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI). Final reports are kept on the ERD website for 5 years, and older reports are retained by ERD and available on request.

The Montana Department of Labor and Industry's contact for the OSHS program is Peggy Coggeshall (pcoggeshall@mt.gov or coggeshall_p@states.bls.gov or 406-444-3297).

Brief History of the OSHS Program

1970—Following passage of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, BLS was tasked with developing a comprehensive statistical system covering work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatalities in private industry.
1972—First year the SOII was conducted by BLS. The survey provided estimates of the number of nonfatal injuries and illnesses by industry.
1992—SOII estimates were expanded to include detailed case characteristics and worker demographics for cases that involved days away from work. CFOI was initiated to provide a complete annual count of all fatal work injuries.
