California Occupational Health Indicators

CA-Occupational-Health-Indicators-Report-Cover-ArtThe Occupational Health Branch (OHB) has worked with other states, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) to develop a set of Occupational Health Indicators ("Indicators").

Indicators are statistics that measure work-related injuries, illnesses, exposures, and other factors that can influence worker health. Each indicator was selected because it is important to public health and can be calculated using a data source that is readily available.

OHB uses the statewide indicators to:

  • Share annual data with those in California who are interested in or can influence workplace health and safety, the federal government, and CSTE;
  • Develop partnerships with agencies that collect data and staff expertise in analyzing data;
  • Partner with other states to create "how-to" guides and consider ideas for new indicators; and
  • Guide our efforts to prevent workplace injury and illness in California.
