US FOIA: Judge Orders OSHA to Disclose Injury Rates

Guardian Tuesday August 3

Interesting to look at whether the HSA will release such information here in the UK, will post more on this later.

"WASHINGTON (AP) - The names of companies with the worst safety records must be disclosed by the government along with their injury rates, a federal judge has ruled.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a Labor Department agency, had denied a Freedom of Information Act request filed in 2002 by The New York Times seeking a list of the 13,000 companies identified as having injury and illness rates greater than the national average."
