SVIU FY 2011 Annual Report

SID is releasing its Safety Violations Investigation Unit (SVIU) fiscal year (FY) 2011 results: SVIU FY 2011 Annual Report.

During FY 2011, we increased our effectiveness and exceeded operational goals. We increased the percentage of all cases closed founded from 22 percent in FY 2009 to 45 percent in FY 2011. We increased the percentage of violations of specific safety requirements (VSSR) adjudications that resulted in the granting of an award by the Industrial Commission (IC) from 20 percent in FY 2010 to 27 percent in FY 2011. We decreased the average duration of an investigation to just 82 days. Thus, we increased the percentage of cases closed within 90 days from 76 percent in FY 2010 to 82 percent in FY 2011. These results contribute to the agency’s priorities — improving operations and providing better service and care for customers.

During the last 12 months, we focused on combating VSSRs while encouraging workplace safety and employer compliance. The FY 2011 SVIU report includes information about these efforts and the conditions regarding worker and workplace safety in Ohio, citing a couple of noteworthy cases. The report also identifies trends and highlights future strategies as specified in our department’s five-year strategic plan.
