Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII)
The Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) is a nationwide annual survey used to measure injury and illness incidence rates in the workplace. Each year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) randomly selects a representative sample of Oregon employers to participate. The BLS team at Oregon DCBS is available to help with any questions or concerns regarding your selection and participation in the BLS SOII survey.
Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) Program
The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries program is administered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in conjunction with participating state agencies, including Oregon DCBS. Survey staff members collect and disseminate detailed information on all work-related fatal injuries in the United States.
The knowledge acquired from CFOI data produces a foundation for occupational fatality prevention. Policy analysts, safety and health professionals, university researchers, union organizations, trade organizations, the media, government agencies, safety equipment manufacturers, and concerned employers and workers can use CFOI data and information to better understand working conditions. Each group contributes to the occupational safety and health information knowledge base, and this information repository facilitates courses of action to prevent occupational fatalities.
