Worker Health and Safety



The Occupational Health and Safety Surveillance Program monitors work-related injuries, illnesses and fatalities in Colorado.  We provide data and develop reports on occupational hazards and exposures and their impacts on health.  Researchers, policy makers, public health practitioners, employers and others can use this information to improve the health and safety of Colorado's workforce.   


The program collects, compiles and disseminates information on a variety of measures, such as:

  • Work-related fatalities
  • Work-related hospitalizations
  • Work-related injuries, such as amputations and burns
  • Work-related illnesses, such as mesothelioma and pneumoconiosis
  • Occupational lead and pesticide exposure
  • Employment in high risk industries and occupations
  • Socio-economic impact of work-related injuries
