Incident Statistics

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 is 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 F 5800.1 form. Some reports have interactive graphs, which can be changed based on pre-selected prompts.

Search the Hazmat Incident Database

The Hazmat Incident Report Search Tool presents information from the Hazardous Materials Incident Report Form that can be shared with stakeholders about the size, frequency and impacts of hazardous materials releases during transportation and improve the safe transportation of hazardous materials.
