Abstract The national surveillance system for occupational injuries and illnesses, which is administered by the U.S. Deparment of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is based on reports from employers. The national estimates are derived from a sampling strategy rather than a census of all work-related injures and illnesses. In response to a National Academy of Sciences report in 1987 (NRC, 1987) which showed that the BLS national estimates missed 50% of acute work-related deaths, BLS began the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI). CFOI is a complete census that uses multiple data sources, covers all workers and is not dependent on an employer either being aware of the condition or responding to a survey. No such change was implemented to improve the national estimates for non-fatal work-related injuries and illnesses.
