Healthy People 2010
Progress Review Focus Area 20 – Occupational Safety and Health Presentation
Title slide for the February 21st, 2008 Healthy People 2010 Focus Area 20 data presentation by Dr. Edward Sondik
Burden of occupational injuries and illnesses slide.
In 2006 there were 5,703 work-related injury deaths in the U.S. or about 16 deaths per day, more than 4 million new nonfatal injuries and illnesses reported in the private industry alone, 3,857,400 injuries, and 228,000 illnesses. The Estimated cost of occupational injuries and illnesses are $128 – $155 Billion dollars annually.
Rates and counts of injuries and illnesses in 2006 are shown based on data provided by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL, BLS). Also shown is the estimated U.S. cost for these injuries and illnesses based on research by Paul A. Schulte in: Characterizing the burden of occupational injury and disease.

Data are from the Healthy People DATA2010.
This slide contains data for work-related injury deaths by race, ethnicity, and gender in 1998 and 2006, per 100,000 full-time workers. Data are from the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (CFOII), DOL, BLS.
This slide contains trends in work-related injury deaths between 1998 and 2006 for the total population, and separately for the agricultural, construction, and mining industries.
This slide contains the number of pneumoconiosis deaths for the period 2000 to 2004 by state as a color coded map with six categories of number of deaths. Data are from National Occupational Respiratory Mortality System (NORMS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (CDC, NIOSH).
This slide contains the number of pneumoconiosis deaths for the period 2000 to 2004 by state as a color coded map with six categories of number of deaths. Added to the previous map are the changes in the number of deaths by state between the 1980 to 1984 period and the 2000 to 2004 period. Data are from NORMS, CDC, NIOSH.
This slide contains the change in the age-adjusted death rate from pneumoconiosis between the 1980 to 1984 period and the 2000 to 2004 period. The change in rates is displayed as a color coded map with 5 categories. Data are from NORMS, CDC, NIOSH.
This slide contains the trend in pneumoconiosis deaths for the total population between 1997 and 2004. Data are from NORMS, CDC, NIOSH
This slide contains rates of work-related injuries in 1998 and 2006, per 100 full-time workers. Data are given separately for all workers; the mining, construction, agricultural, and manufacturing industries. Also given are data for adolescent workers for which the second data point is 2005. Data are from the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII), DOL, BLS.
This slide contains data for overexertion or repetitive motion injuries, per 100,000 full-time workers, between 1997 and 2006. Data are from SOII, DOL, BLS.
This slide contains the trend in elevated (>= 25 micrograms / deciliter) blood-lead levels for the total population 16 years and older between 1998 and 2005, per 100,000 adult workers. Data are from the Adult blood Lead Epidemiology and Surveillance Program, CDC, NIOSH.
This slide contains the trend in occupational skin diseases or disorders for the total population between 1990 and 2006, per 100,000 adult workers. Data are from SOII, DOL, BLS.
This slide summarizes by count the status of all Occupational Safety and Health objectives. 6 met or exceeded their target, 11 are improving, 3 are getting worse, none have little or no progress, one has no tracking data, none were dropped at midcourse, and one was retained as developmental.
