QUICK LINKS
CFOI is a surveillance project designed to count and describe all fatal work-related injuries in the nation. The project, funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), and state governments, covers all U.S. states and territories. New Jersey was one of the first CFOI participants, joining the project in 1991. The first national census was published with 1992 data. The NJ CFOI project is administered by the Occupational Health Surveillance Unit in the New Jersey Department of Health.

What fatal injuries are considered work-related?

A fatal injury is considered work-related if the event leading to the injury occurred while the employee was working, either on or off the employer’s premises.

The following categories of individuals are included:

  • Private and government employees,
  • Self-employed persons,
  • Certain volunteers (firefighters, law enforcement officers, emergency medical service workers), and
  • Persons traveling as a condition of employment, but not commuting to or from work.
