822,731 of the jobs in the Occupational Therapy category are currently classified as hazardous by the Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).
The DOL classifies hazardous occupations by the number of reported injuries and fatalities per 1,000 workers, which the agency uses to identify jobs that pose a safety risk to the public.
OSHA’s latest data shows the occupational therapy industry has recorded nearly 5.6 million injuries and deaths since 2006.
The number of occupational therapy workers who have died rose nearly 80 percent from 2006 to 2018, to 2,812, while the number who were injured rose nearly 60 percent, to 1,851.
Occupational therapist positions have been classified as the top occupational hazards for a decade, with more than 80 percent of occupational therapist fatalities occurring in 2017.
However, there are still more than 300,000 occupational therapy positions that remain classified as safe.
According to the Occupancy Safety and Healthcare Administration, there were nearly 7 million reported occupational therapy-related injuries and illnesses in 2018.
It’s the second-most dangerous occupation in the country, behind only nursing, with nearly 17,000 fatalities, the agency said.
In addition, there have been more than 100,000 confirmed occupational therapy fatalities since 2006, according to OSHA.
The Occupational Therapist and Occupational Medicine occupations are the two most dangerous occupational groups.
They have the highest number of confirmed occupational therapist deaths, with about 5.4 million total, followed by occupational medicine with 3.7 million, occupational therapy with 2.3 million, and occupational therapy and occupational medicine positions with 1.6 and 1.1 million, respectively.
Occupationally Therapists are responsible for performing physical examinations, assessing injuries and providing other services.
They are required to be licensed as a therapist.
They can perform home visits, administer medication, perform physical examinations and perform other related tasks.
Occupually Therapistic professionals have also been at the center of numerous lawsuits, including a class action lawsuit filed in March 2018 by more than 500,000 Occupational and Environmental Therapist practitioners against the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Occupations and Health Careers Division of the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Occupants’ Rights Coalition.
According the lawsuit, over the years, over 30,000 of these professions have been closed, and nearly 9,000 have been placed on a waitlist for licensure.
For more than three decades, the occupational therapists have been a key part of the healthcare industry, with thousands of people employed.
The occupation has been highly regulated, with some professions requiring the ability to have a license and certification, while others do not.
Some professions are subject to stricter licensing requirements than others, and some occupations have even been exempted from many of the state licensing requirements, according the Occupationally Helps Association, which represents occupational therapists.
“If we’re going to continue to have occupational therapists in the workplace, we have to ensure they are trained and qualified,” said Lori A. O’Malley, president and CEO of the Occupually Helps association.
The industry also has been a focus of legislation that has expanded occupational therapist licensure, with occupational therapists currently licensed in more than 30 states.
In 2019, the American Association of Occupational Psychologists (AOAOP) voted to make occupational therapy a recognized occupational specialty.
The AOAOP has been working to advance occupational therapy’s legal status as a specialty since the 1970s.
“There’s a lot of people who are working in the field of occupational therapists who are still struggling to get licensure,” O’Mally said.
The American Association for Occupational Counseling and Therapeutic Professionals (AAPCPT) has also taken a lead role in occupational therapy.
The AAPCPT, which was formed in 1975, represents occupational therapist, occupational therapist occupational therapist and occupational therapist specialty occupations.
It has a membership of more than 200,000 practitioners, including occupational therapists, occupational therapists and occupational therapists specialist occupations.
APCPT members are trained in occupational therapist education and occupational psychologist training and have the authority to conduct occupational therapy education and training courses.
According a 2017 report by the AAPCpt, occupational therapies were responsible for more than 3.2 million occupational therapy jobs in 2018, with the largest percentage of these jobs being in nursing homes.
APTAs current position is that occupational therapy is a medically safe and effective practice, and that occupational therapists should be given the authority and the tools to provide care to the people they serve.
However the AAPCs position has been criticized by the AOAAPC.
The AMA’s position on occupational therapy has been one of the most divisive issues surrounding the profession in recent years.
AMA President and CEO Richard Nisbett said in a statement that the AMA opposes the removal of occupational therapeutic practice from the medical safe limits of practice and
