OSHA Incident Report Analysis

This analysis report focuses on analyzing OSHA incident reports to identify possible contributing factors to workplace incidents. The report examines variables such as cases per capita, incident rates, establishment type (governmental or non-governmental), establishment size, and the effect of hours worked on incidents reported. The report utilizes data from the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), state population estimates from the US Census Bureau, and NAICS codes for industry descriptions.

The report provides insights into the variation of incidents across states, the impact of establishment type on reporting rates, the relationship between establishment size and incident rates, and the influence of hours worked on incidents reported. It identifies industries that have higher cases per capita and incident rates, highlighting areas of concern and potential focus for improvement. The report also discusses the need for accurate data recording and addresses limitations related to self-reported information and inconsistent industry descriptions.
