Nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses in California

Below are the estimates of counts and incidence rates of employer-reported nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses by industry and type of case, as well as more detailed estimates of case circumstances and worker characteristics for cases that resulted in days away from work.

Estimates for the California Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) are derived from a statistical sample of employers in the state. The California SOII program is administered by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics in cooperation with California’s Department of Industrial Relations. Surveyed employers report data as required by the OSHA Recordkeeping regulation (29 CFR 1904), using the OSHA 300 Log. See more from BLS on the SOII methodology.

The Summary tables give an overview of numbers and incidence rates of injuries and illnesses by selected industries and by case types: all injuries (Total Recordable Cases or TRC); cases involving Days away from work, job transfer or restriction (DART); cases involving days away from work (DAFW), and cases of job transfer or restriction only (DJTR).

The Case and demographic tables highlight case circumstances and worker characteristics—-for example, worker occupation, event or exposure, and the nature of the injury or illness, among others—-that are available for nonfatal injuries and illnesses that resulted in days away from work (DAFW).

Research studies that highlight the trends are available for some recent years.

Estimates involving days away from work (DAFW) by detailed case characteristics and worker demographics for 2021 are not published in this release. In the Fall of 2023, SOII will begin biennial publication for DAFW and days of job transfer or restriction (DJTR) for the period 2021-2022.
