Workplace Injury and Illness Summary Data Available for 2019

Most employers are required to post the OSHA Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses in all workplaces/reporting locations each year from February 1 through April 30. This summary form lists the total number of work-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during the previous year and must be posted in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.

Employees and union staff and leaders also have the right to access more detailed logs of workplace injuries and illness, which can be helpful to CWA leaders and activists who are assessing the need for more investigation into health and safety issues and to prioritize prevention strategies.
