DOL releases six datasets to track health and safety

[tweetmeme]From AIHA…

The U.S. Dept. of Labor has made six high-value datasets available to make it possible for anyone in the public to better track health and safety conditions in the American workplace.
 
Earlier this month the DOL launched a transparency Web page (http://www.dol.gov/open) that tracks the department’s efforts to comply with the administration’s Open Government Directive.

Aside from the six datasets released, the DOL’s Bureau of Labor Statistics previously released dozens of datasets highlighting employment projections, trends, surveys, and statistics, and OSHA made available a dataset to report weekly fatalities and catastrophes as reported by its area offices.

In accordance with the administration’s Open Government Directive issued in December 2009, the DOL uploaded the information released to Data.gov. The administration’s directive established a new standard for government agencies, insisting that by specific dates they achieve key milestones in transparency, collaboration, and participation.

The six datasets released by the DOL follow:
