Occupational Disease Registry
The Occupational Disease Registry conducts surveillance of occupational diseases, injuries and conditions through three components: The Adult Blood Lead Registry (ABLR), the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) and the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII).
The Department's Adult Blood Lead Registry is a surveillance program of laboratory-reported adult blood lead levels.
The Department's Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, which began collecting data for calendar year 1992, is part of a U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) effort to provide a complete count of fatal work injuries in all 50 states.
In 1998, the Department began participating in the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics' Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, which provides data on all non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses in Illinois.
