OSH Reports The OSH Division publishes several reports each year, summarizing OSH statistical data and Division performance. The reports include the following: Occupational Fatality Inspection Review (OFIR) - updated monthly OSH Most Frequently Cited Standards Report Occupational Safety and Health Annual Comparison Report State OSHA Annual Report (SOAR) The NCDOL Research and Policy Safety and Health Survey Section collects, reviews, refines and publishes injury and illness survey data for certification by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The data is used by the U.S. Department of Labor to provide an accurate measurement of the work-related injury and illness rates and demographic and case characteristics data on employees across the United States. The section conducts the BLS-sponsored Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) and the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII). Occupational Fatality Inspection Review The OFIR Report is compiled based on the event date by federal fiscal year (October 1 - September 30). The report lists only those workplace fatalities that have been or are being inspected by the OSH Division. The report lists fatality inspections by the OSH field offices to which they are assigned; Asheville, Charlotte, Raleigh, Wilmington or Winston-Salem. Workplace fatalities that have not been inspected by OSH (e.g., some heart attacks, vehicular fatalities) are not included in this report. For more information about any of these statistical reports, please contact the Planning, Statistics and Information Management (PSIM) Bureau at 919-707-7838.
