Abstract :

During a research study conducted in 2013, using data from the 2008 OSHA Data Initiative (ODI), several research findings became apparent about safety statistical data provided by OSHA. These research findings included analysis of mishaps by organizational type, ownership, annual revenue and numerous other organizational wide variables that were studied. These findings serve as the basis for conclusions that will be presented, primarily focused on the statistical data meanings and the findings that have relevance to the safety within the industrialized world.
