2013 Injury and Illness Statistics

(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; and 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.
