GAO, OSHA find work-related injuries underreported

November 17, 2009

An article in the New York Times, Work-related injuries underreported by Steven Greenhouse, details a GAO report on OSHA data regarding injuries in the workplace. Washington Senator Patty Murray is quoted:

“This report confirms that when it comes to the documenting of workplace injuries, we can’t just take employers at their word,” said Senator Patty Murray, Democrat of Washington and chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Employment and Workplace Safety. “The system, to this point, has been all too easy to game.”
