Occupational Disease Registry
The IDPH Adult Blood Lead Registry (ABLR) is a surveillance program of laboratory-reported adult blood levels. ABLR collects data on cases of elevated blood lead levels of 10 micrograms per deciliter (mcg/dL) and above for adults 16 years of age and older and notifies federal enforcement agencies to trigger inspections and/or interventions.
The purpose of the Illinois Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) is to monitor, with verification, all fatal work injuries by collecting information on the circumstances of each fatality and on the characteristics of each decedent. The data compiled by the CFOI program are published each year and contain information on the workers involved and the event surrounding each fatality.
The Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) focuses on surveillance of non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses.
