Use of Workers’ Compensation Data for Occupational Safety and Health: Proceedings from June 2012 Workshop

The purpose for the June 2012 Use of Workers’ Compensation Data for Occupational Safety and Health Workshop was to explore ways in which workers’ compensation information can be used for public health research and surveillance.  Thirty-five poster and platform presentations described studies that utilized workers’ compensation information while exploring limitations of these resources.  The workshop proceedings contain summary articles for the presentations plus notes from the discussion groups for the 6 white papers that were drafted for the workshop. 

The workshop was co-sponsored by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC), National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries, Safety and Health Assessment for Research and Prevention (SHARP) program.
