JLARC reviewed the state’s workplace safety and health activities at the Department of Labor and Industries, Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH). The report concludes DOSH complies with federal and state law, and it allocates resources for data-driven prevention activities. Further, research shows a reduction in claims after DOSH activities, and cautions policy makers about comparing injury and illness rates across states. The report does not make recommendations.
