Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries

The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) developed the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) as a cooperative venture between the states and the federal government to gather data about fatal occupational injuries. The Illinois Department of Public Health has participated in CFOI since 1993. The purpose of the Illinois 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.
