This OSHA Injury Report was built from data that is publicly available from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). It has been compiled directly from the data provided on OSHA’s website with most of the fields and categories provided. We claim no responsibility for any errors or inconsistencies in OSHA’s data.

OSHA Injury Reports can be helpful in understanding what types of workplace injury claims involve defective products or malfunctioning equipment in the workplace. The manufacturers of defective products or equipment are called “third parties”. When a “third party” is involved in a workplace accident, it is possible to collect damages beyond worker’s compensation.
