OSHA requires many employers to keep a record of injuries and illnesses to help identify hazards, fix problems and prevent additional injuries and illnesses. More than three million workers suffer a workplace injury or illness every year, and there is no publicly available a ccess to this information. Employers in high-hazard industries will send OSHA injury and illness data that the employers are already required to collect, for posting on the agency's website.
Woodworking Network published news announcements from OSHA of penalties and actions it takes in enforcement of work safety rules in the wood manufacturing industry.
