Strategic Goal 1
Increase the knowledge base on the value of preventing occupational illness and injury.
  • Project: Economic Burden of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses in Small Businesses

1.1 Improve surveillance at the federal, state, and private level to describe the economic burden of occupational illness and injury, identify priorities for research and prevention, and evaluate trends over time.

Economic Burden of Occupational Injury and Illness in the United States
Milbank Quarterly 2011 Dec; 89(4): 728-772
This NIOSH-funded study estimated the cost of occupational injuries and illnesses in 2007 to be approximately $250 billion, $31 billion more than the cost of all cancers and $76 billion more than the cost of diabetes. The study presented statistics on occupational injuries and illnesses and their respective costs for U.S. civilian workers, including those of self-employed, agricultural, and federal workers. The cost estimates of fatal injuries and nonfatal injuries and illnesses were incidence based (tracked current and anticipated future costs of new injuries and illnesses) and were complemented with prevalence based (tracked current and past costs of prevalent illnesses) cost estimates for fatal illnesses.

These fact sheets present the total, mean, and median costs of occupational fatalities by industry (according to the Standard Industrial Classification System) and selected characteristics for the period 1992–2002. Costs are expressed as the sum of direct and indirect costs: direct costs include medical expenses, while indirect costs are expressed as the value of future earnings (in present value terms) summed from the year of death until the decedent would have reached age 67.
