Work-related injury and illness can have a significant impact on workers, their families, employers, and society. The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologist (CSTE) in association with the CDC’s National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has set forth 24 occupational health indicators (OHIs) to help measure work-related disease or injury and factors associated with workplace health hazards, exposures, or interventions. Using the most recent data available and following the guidelines set forth from the 2016 Occupational Health Indicators: A Guide for Tracking Occupational Health Conditions and Their Determinants, VDH generated a report for Virginia for the years 2005 to 2014. Of the 24 OHIs, Virginia currently has the capability to track and monitor 20 indicators.
