The Division of Safety & Hygiene's research and statistics department partners with the Bureau of Labor Statistics to conduct the annual Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) for Ohio. The CFOI program gathers information on comprehensive count and descriptive statistics on fatal occupational injuries across the nation. The census provides highly accurate information due to its methodology, which includes use of multiple data sources for surveillance purposes. The census provides valuable information used by safety and health organizations and professionals to identify and track specific life-threatening hazards and enhance effectiveness of preventive measures. Results from the program at state and national levels are published annually.
