OSHA Workplace Injury Statistics

Every employer has a legal obligation to report all workplace injuries to the OSHA, meaning the agency carries accurate statistics relating to the frequency and type of injuries sustained. Some of the current key facts and figures include the following:

  • In 2016, more than 99 workers per week were killed in fatal work accidents
  • One-fifth of these deaths occurred within the construction industry
  • OSHA’s “Fatal Four” accounted for over 60% of these construction deaths:
  1. Falls were cited as the cause of 384 out of 991 deaths in 2016 (38%)
  2. 9.4% of construction deaths occurred as a result of being struck by an object
  3. 82 people died following an electrocution
  4. Becoming caught by an object or equipment, crushing, and similar incidents resulted in 72 fatalities, or 3.7% of the total construction-related deaths

As many workplace injuries are caused by negligence or failure to comply with regulations, OSHA also compiles statistics relating to the most common violations. In 2016, the top 10 read as follows:

  1. Fall protection, construction
  2. Hazard communication standard, general industry
  3. Scaffolding, general requirements, construction
  4. Respiratory protection, general industry
  5. Control of hazardous energy (lockout/tag out), general industry
  6. Ladders, construction
  7. Powered industrial trucks, general industry
