The dataset contains data about work-related fatalities and catastrophes based on the incident investigations done by The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and State Plan jurisdiction for cases that have been closed on or after January 1, 2017. Work-related fatalities and catastrophes are described by date, city or place, state, ZIP Code, number along with a short description of the incident.


Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is part of the United States Department of Labor. OSHA’s mission is to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.

According to the latest regulations, the incident summaries include only cases in which citations and penalties were issued. OSHA investigates all work-related fatalities in all covered workplaces. The employers must report worker fatalities to OSHA within eight hours of incident. OSHA has up to six months to complete an investigation and determine whether citations will be issued.

The data regarding the number of fatalities and catastrophes are based on the preliminary descriptions of incidents and where available, on the specified type of incidents (fatality and/or catastrophe). According to OSHA, catastrophes are incidents that resulted in the hospitalization of three or more workers. The data about location (company, city or place, state, ZIP Code) were organized in distinct fields.
