The OSHA Data Initiative (ODI) Survey is similar to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, but does not require the same level of detail.  The information reported by the employer on the OSHA Work-Related Injury and Illness Data Collection Form is used by OSHA as a basis for targeting intervention programs and to measure the success of agency efforts to help reduce the number of workplace injuries and illnesses in select high-hazard industries.  Companies that fall under the jurisdiction of OSHA are chosen on a random sampling basis by federal OSHA to complete the data collection form.  Companies that fail to respond to the data collection form and companies that have high injury/illness rates are likely to receive the data collection form every year.  Indiana collects ODI surveys for Indiana and part of Ohio.  The data collection period is traditionally June through October for the previous calendar year.
