Department's Research and Analysis Unit Receives State Recognition from OSHA
The Labor Department's Research and Analysis Unit was recently recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for successful data collection and outstanding performance for the 2008 OSHA Data Initiative (ODI).

OSHA uses this data to target employers that have high incidents of on-the-job injuries and illnesses. This allows OSHA to target and reach out to employers for safety consultation and other services.
Based on its overall performance and data quality, the Unit received the following three awards from OSHA:
