Nonprofits as nongovernmental organization are covered by OSHA. Begin at the OSHA web site. Go to “Data and Statistics” and select “establishment search” to search for your target firm. You can also search by industry to get a broader sense of what is happening. If your company has made recent acquisitions, you will need to search under that name as well.
NIOSH also provides more general information and you can search by industry.
A general news search may also supplement what you find on the OSHA web site. Serious accidents or injuries are newsworthy, especially in local papers. You can also use news information to make sense of the more formal OSHA data.
