PHMSA produces a series of reports which provide statistical information on incidents by type, year, geographical location, and other factors. Data is updated nightly and can be downloaded into PDF, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

Incident data and summary statistics for current and previous years are provided as appropriate. The data provided is that from the Hazardous Materials Incident Report Form 5800.1.

    Available Reports

    Incident data and summary statistics for previous years are provided in a new, easy-to-navigate format.

    PHMSA OHMS has developed pre-defined CAN (Conditions, Actions, and Needs) Reports based on the most commonly requested data.  

    Users of PHMSA's Hazardous Materials Incident Statistic Reports now have the ability to "drill down" to view specific computer generated incident reports representative of the DOT F5800.1 form. Some reports have interactive graphs which can be changed based on pre-selected prompts.
