  • (1) The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers and were calculated as: (N/EH) x 200,000, where
    • N = number of injuries and illnesses
    • EH = total hours worked by all employees during the calendar year
    • 200,000= base for 100 equivalent full-time workers
      (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
  • (2) Totals include data for industries not shown separately.
  • (3) North American Industry Classification System - United States, 2007
  • (4) Employment is expressed as an annual average and is derived primarily from the BLS-Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program.
  • (5) Days-away-from-work cases include those which result in days away from work with or without job transfer or restriction.
  • (11) Data too small to be displayed.

NOTE: Because of rounding, components may not add to totals. Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.
