NCDOL Statistical Reports

Occupational Safety and Health Division (OSH)

The OSH Planning, Statistics and Information Management (PSIM) Bureau compiles and analyzes OSH statistical data. The reports published by the PSIM Bureau include:

  • Occupational Fatality Inspection Review (OFIR) - updated monthly

The OFIR Report is compiled based on the event date by federal fiscal year (October 1 - September 30). The report lists only those workplace fatalities that have been or are being inspected by OSH. The report lists fatality inspections by the OSH offices to which they are assigned: Asheville, Charlotte, Raleigh, Wilmington or Winston-Salem. Workplace fatalities that have not been inspected by OSH (such as some heart attacks, vehicular fatalities, etc.) are not included in this report.

To obtain a complete history of each inspection, readers may access the OSHA database at Enter the inspection number of the investigation listed in this report. Any citations issued during the inspection will be displayed along with other establishment information.
