OSH Statistics (Injuries, Illnesses and Fatalities)

Fatal Occupational Injuries

The Occupational Safety and Health Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries Division is responsible for compiling work related injury, illness and fatality statistics. This data is available to the public upon request.

The Arkansas Department of Labor has contracted with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics to conduct annual surveys of workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses.

The first data for fatalities was released in the fall of 1993 for calendar year 1992 through a program known as CFOI, Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries. Findings on the number of fatalities in Arkansas for each subsequent year are as follows:
