Occupational Health Indicators
The indicators highlight both successes and areas that may need additional exploration to protect the safety and health of Maryland's workers. Work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths are largely preventable. By tracking work-related incidents we are better able to understand the underlying issues leading to these outcomes. This will help guide efforts to prevent these incidents in the future and improve the health and safety of work places in Maryland.
Where does the data for the Occupational Health Indicators come from?
These indicators are prepared using a number of different data sources, including U.S. Census data, MD Hospitalization data, Bureau of Labor Statistics data, and other state and national data sources.
More about these Indicators
The occupational health indicators were created through a joint effort between the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). For more information on the Occupational Health Indicators, or to view other states' data please visit the
Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists web page.
