Researchers and public health professionals may use Worker Health Charts to access worker safety and health trends and identify emerging issues.

For example:
Dr. Jane Smith, an epidemiologist in Georgia, is interested in work-related lead exposure. She uses Worker Health Charts to look at the trend of work-related lead poisoning cases among adults from 2002-2018. She sees that lead poisoning cases declined from 2005 to 2009, but have slowly increased since 2010, with a large jump in 2018. She is concerned about this shift in pattern and contacts the local health department to explore why lead poisoning cases have been increasing.
