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 Standard Industrial Classification Manual, 1987 Edition.

4 Employment is expressed as an annual average and is derived primarily from the BLS-State Covered Employment and Wages program.

5 Total lost workday cases involve days away from work, days of restricted work activity, or both.

6 Days-away-from-work cases include those which result in days away from work with or without restricted work activity.

NOTE: Because of rounding, components may not add to totals. Dash indicates
data not available. The n.e.c. abbreviation means that the category includes those
components not elsewhere classified.
