NONFATAL OCCUPATIONAL INJURIES AND ILLNESSES REQUIRING DAYS AWAY FROM WORK, 2011

The rate of nonfatal occupational injury and illness cases requiring days away from work to recuperate was 117 cases per 10,000 full-time workers in 
2011, statistically unchanged from 2010, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The total number of private industry, state government, and 
local government cases with days away from work remained statistically unchanged at 1,181,290. The median days away from work--a key measure of severity 
of injuries and illnesses--was 8 days, the same as the previous year. (See table 1.)

Key Findings:

- Occupational injuries and illnesses to workers in five occupations accounted for nearly 20 percent of the days-away-from-work cases in 2011: laborers; 
nursing aides and orderlies and attendants; janitors and cleaners; heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers; and police officers and sheriff’s patrol 
officers. Police officers had an incidence rate per 10,000 full-time workers that was five times greater than for all occupations; the rate for laborers 
was three times greater than the rate for all workers. (See table 4 and table B.)

- The proportion of injuries and illnesses was highest among workers age 45-54--accounting for 26 percent of the total cases in 2011. (See table 6.) In 
private industry, workers in this age group had decreases in case counts and incidence rates, as did workers age 16-19 and 65 and over. Injuries and 
illnesses to workers age 55-64 in manufacturing increased 6 percent to 21,660 cases; workers age 20-24 had a 13 percent increase in the same industry. 
(See table 8.)

- Among private industry workers, injuries and illnesses to workers with 1-5 years of service with an employer accounted for 35 percent of the 
cases--despite an 11 percent decrease. However, the number of days-away-from-work cases increased for workers with fewer than 3 months-of-service (up 3 
percent) and 3-11 months-of-service (up 7 percent). In the agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting industry, there was a 32 percent increase in the 
number of cases for workers with 3-11 months-of-service. (See table 8.)

- Musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) cases (387,820) accounted for 33 percent of all injury and illness cases in 2011. Six occupations accounted for 26 percent 
of the MSD cases in 2011: nursing assistants; laborers; janitors and cleaners; heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers; registered nurses; and stock clerks. 
Heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers required a median of 21 days away from work to recuperate, compared to 11 days for all workers who sustained an MSD. 
(See table 18.)

Occupation (private sector, state government, local government)

These seven occupations had an incidence rate greater than 300 cases per 10,000 full-time workers and had greater than 20,000 days-away-from-work cases: 
police and sheriff’s patrol officers; nursing aides, orderlies and attendants; light truck or delivery service drivers; laborers and freight, stock and 
material movers; correctional officers; heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers; and janitors and cleaners. (See table 4 and table B.) These occupations 
also had at least one-tenth of one percent of total employment.

Laborers accounted for the highest proportion of injuries and illnesses in private industry--6 percent of 908,310 cases. Laborers in private industry had an 
incidence rate of 353 cases per 10,000 full-time workers--more than three times greater than the rate for all private industry workers. These workers 
required a median of 9 days away from work to recuperate. (See table 4.)  Injuries and illnesses to correctional officers accounted for 21 percent of the 
72,650 total cases in state government. The incidence rate for correctional officers was 629 cases per 10,000 full-time workers, compared to a rate of 183 
for all state government workers. These workers required a median of 24 days before returning to work after their injuries--more than twice as many days as 
all state government workers.

Of the 200,330 days-away-from-work cases in local government, 15 percent occurred to police officers at an incidence rate of 659 cases per 10,000 
full-time workers. Janitors and cleaners accounted for another 9 percent of the cases in local government and had an incidence rate of 565; these occurred 
primarily in the educational services industry.

The incidence rate for public sector workers was 190 cases per 10,000 full-time workers (compared to a rate of 105 for private industry). Some occupations 
experienced higher rates in the public sector (state and local government combined) than their counterparts in the private sector. Janitors and cleaners 
and landscaping and groundskeeping workers had a public sector rate that was over twice that of the private sector. (See chart A.)

Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) changes.  As a result of the conversion from 2000 SOC to 2010 SOC, data are now available on a number of 
detailed occupations. For example, nurse anesthetists, midwives, and nurse practitioners were included in the general category of "Registered nurses" in 
2000 SOC. Data are now available for each unique occupation. Within the old title of nursing aides, orderlies, and attendants, orderlies have been 
separated out from nursing assistants. (See table A.) However, employment data were not available for 2011 to use in calculating incidence rates for 
nursing aides, orderlies, and attendants and registered nurses. In these two high profile occupation categories, data were coded according to 2000 SOC so 
that available employment data could be used to calculate incidence rates. Nursing aides, orderlies and attendants had an incidence rate of 444 cases per 
10,000 full-time workers and nurses had an incidence rate of 136. Comparable employment data will be available for the next year and the occupation series 
will be purely based on 2010 SOC coding.

Private industry

In the private sector, the number of days-away-from-work cases decreased 3 percent in 2011 to 908,310 with an incidence rate of 105 cases per 10,000 
full-time workers. (See table 1.) The median number of days away from work was 8 days for the fourth consecutive year--this statistic is regarded as a key 
measure of the severity of injuries and illnesses. Three industries had more than 100,000 incidents in 2011: health care and social assistance (171,530), 
manufacturing (129,030), and retail trade (126,550).

More than one third of occupational injuries and illnesses in health care and social assistance involved interaction with people other than the injured 
employee; most frequently with a patient (28 percent). The incidence rate for violence and other injuries by persons or animal (15 per 10,000 full-time 
workers) was more than triple the overall rate for all of private industry (4 per 10,000 full-time workers). Health care and social assistance also had the 
highest proportion of days-away-from-work cases of female workers (81 percent of all incidents) among all industries, contributing more than 40 percent of 
all private ownership cases where the injured or ill employee was female.

While it had fewer than 100,000 cases (88,050), the transportation and warehousing industry had the highest private industry incidence rate in 2011, with 
226 cases per 10,000 full-time workers. The overexertion and bodily reaction rate (88 cases per 10,000 full-time workers) was more than double the rate for 
all private industry (38). The incidence rate for transportation events was 25 cases per 10,000 full-time workers in this industry, compared to an incidence 
rate of 5 for private industry as a whole. As in prior years, the incidence rate for cases requiring 31 days or more away from work was higher in 
transportation and warehousing (88) than it was for all of private industry (29). 

The mining industry had the highest overall median number of days spent away from work per case with 28 days. This was followed by transportation and 
warehousing (17 median days), construction (14 median days), utilities (13 median days), and information (13 median days). In all five of these industries, 
at least 30 percent of the cases required at least 31 days away from work.
 


Case circumstances

A number of variables describe the circumstances of workplace injuries and illnesses that required one or more days away from work. They include nature, 
part of body, source, and event or exposure, as well as "musculoskeletal disorders" (a combination of selected nature and event or exposure categories). 


                           ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                             A nursing aide sprains her back from overexertion in lifting a health care patient.  
                                            -------     ----      -----------------------   --------------------  
                                              |           |           |                              |  

                                          (nature) (part of body)  (event or exposure)           (source)

                           ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Event or exposure.  In 2011, for all ownerships, 40 percent of the injuries and illness cases requiring days away from work were attributed to three types 
of events or exposures: falls on the same level (15 percent); struck by object or equipment (13 percent); and overexertion in lifting or lowering (12 
percent). (See table 5.) Injuries and illnesses incurred from falls on the same level and overexertion in lifting or lowering each required a median of 10 
days for workers to recuperate--two more than the 8 days required for all types of events or exposures. Injuries from being struck by objects or equipment 
required a median of 5 days away from work to recuperate.

Overall, the leading event or exposure in 2011 was overexertion and bodily reaction with 415,800 cases and an incidence rate of 41 cases per 10,000 
full-time workers. (See table 5.) Overexertion and bodily reaction was the leading event or exposure for four of the five occupations shown in table B. 
However, for police and sheriff’s patrol officers, violence and other injuries by persons or animal was the leading event or exposure.

Injuries and illnesses incurred from repetitive motion involving microtasks accounted for only 3 percent of all the occupational injury and illness cases 
in 2011. However, workers who sustained injuries or illnesses in this manner required a median of 23 days away from work--nearly 3 times as many days for 
all types of injuries and illnesses.

Nature of injury or illness.  In 2011, sprains, strains, and tears accounted for 38 percent of total injury and illness cases requiring days away from work 
in all ownerships. Soreness and pain accounted for 12 percent of the total cases. While accounting for smaller proportions of total cases, fractures; 
amputations; multiple injuries with fractures; and carpal tunnel syndrome each required a median of 25 days or more away from work to recuperate--more than 
3 times the number of days for all types of injuries and illnesses. (See table 5.)  

Of the 447,200 sprains, strains, and tears in 2011, 22 percent were the result of overexertion in lifting or lowering. Falls on the same level accounted 
for 12 percent of sprains, strains, and tears. In 36 percent of the sprain, strain, and tear cases, the back was injured. Injuries to the shoulders and 
knees each accounted for 12 percent. (See table 17 and chart B.)

Fractures accounted for 8 percent of all injuries and illnesses in 2011, however, these types of injuries required more than 3 times the number of days to 
recuperate--27 days compared with 8 days for all types of injuries and illnesses. Falls on the same level accounted for 33 percent of fractures and another 
22 percent were the result of being struck by an object or equipment. Fractures of the hand accounted for 18 percent of the fracture cases and required a 
median of 11 days before returning to work. Workers who fractured their ankles required a median 42 days, but accounted for a small proportion of 
fractures--12 percent. (See table 17.)

Musculoskeletal disorders.  Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), commonly known as ergonomic injuries, accounted for 33 percent of all workplace injuries and 
illnesses requiring days away from work in 2011. (See table 18.) There were 387,820 MSDs in all ownerships with an incidence rate of 39 cases per 10,000 
full-time workers. Workers who sustained musculoskeletal disorders required a median of 11 days to recuperate before returning to work, compared with 8 
days for all types of cases. The revision to the Occupational Injury and Illness Classification system added new detailed nature and event or exposure 
categories that can now be included in the BLS reporting of MSDs. For this reason, MSD data for 2011 should not be compared to prior year data. See 
footnote 4 on table 18 for the list of categories that comprise MSDs.

Five occupations had more than 11,000 MSDs. (See table 18 and table C.) Of these occupations, nursing assistants had the highest count at 25,010. Heavy 
and tractor-trailer truck drivers had the greatest median days away from work with 21 days.

For all occupations, the back was injured in 42 percent of the MSD cases and required a median of 7 days to recuperate. The most severe MSDs occurred to 
the shoulder, requiring a median of 21 days for the worker to return to work, but accounted for only 13 percent of the MSDs.

Worker characteristics

Worker characteristics include age, gender, race or ethnic origin, and length of service with the employer at the time of the incident. (See tables 6, 7, 8, 
10 and 14.) 

Age.  Workers age 65 and over had a greater number of median days away from work than their younger counterparts--requiring a median of 14 days to recuperate 
before returning to work. For all ownerships the number of days away from work cases for most age groups remained relatively unchanged from the previous 
year, except for workers age 16-19 and 45-54 where the number of cases decreased 11 percent and 3 percent, respectively. The incidence rate for workers age 
16-19 decreased to 109 cases per 10,000 full-time worker (from 117 in 2010). For workers age 45-54, the incidence rate per 10,000 full-time workers increased 
to 221 for state government workers and to 223 for local government workers; while it decreased for private sector workers to 111. (See table 6.)

Gender.  The rate of injuries and illnesses requiring days away from work per 10,000 full-time workers remained essentially unchanged in 2011 for both women and 
men at 104 cases and 128 cases, respectively. The number of injuries and illnesses to women declined 3 percent and remained statistically unchanged for men. 
The severity of injury to men was greater than that to women; men required a median of 10 days to recuperate compared with a median of 7 days for women. (See 
table 6.)

Race or ethnicity.  White workers accounted for 41 percent of all days-away-from-work cases in 2011--the number of injuries and illnesses were essentially the 
same as reported in 2010. Hispanic or Latino workers accounted for 11 percent of the cases and black or African American workers accounted for 8 percent. Race 
and ethnicity was unreported in 37 percent of all cases. White workers required a median of seven days away from work to recuperate--one day less than all 
workers required. (See table 7.)

Notes

This release is the third in a series of releases from the BLS covering occupational safety and health statistics for 2011. The first release, in September 
2012, covered work-related fatalities from the 2011 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries. In October 2012, the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses 
(SOII) annual summary reported the total recordable cases by industry and case type for occupational injuries and illnesses for 2011. Data in this third 
release are a subset of the SOII annual summary data and include additional detail about the case circumstances and worker characteristics for occupational 
injury and illness cases that required at least one day away from work to recuperate. While the data come from the same survey, they are reported at different 
levels of precision. For example, in this release, injury and illness incidence rates for days-away-from-work cases are reported per 10,000 full-time workers, 
whereas, the same incidence rate in the SOII annual summary news release is reported per 100 full-time workers. Data users are cautioned to take into account 
the different levels of precision when analyzing the data. Additional background and methodological information regarding the BLS occupational safety and 
health statistics program can be found in Chapter 9 of the BLS Handbook of Methods at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/pdf/homch9.pdf.

Data in this release were coded according to the revised Occupational Injury and Illness Classification system (OIICS 2.01). Many of the titles for event or 
exposure, nature of injury, part of body, and source of injury may be similar to titles used in prior year news releases. However, there have been many 
definitional changes to this coding structure and data users should not make comparisons to prior years. 

This release does not present all the publishable estimates and rates for days-away-from-work cases. Additional detailed data are available from BLS staff at 
202-691-6170, iifstaff@bls.gov, and the BLS Internet site at http://www.bls.gov/iif/home.htm.

Days of job transfer or restriction pilot study.  In January of 2012, the BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) began to collect 
information on case circumstances and worker characteristics for days-of-job-transfer-or-restriction (DJTR) cases. The pilot included six three-digit 
industries including: Specialty trade contractors; Food manufacturing; Building material and garden equipment supplies dealers; Air transportation; Warehousing 
and storage; and Nursing and residential care facilities. Details from this study will be published in 2013.

       1 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are represented in actual values.
       2 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       3 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       4 Includes nonclassifiable responses.
       5 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       6 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal mining are provided to BLS by the Mine
     Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these industries are not comparable to
     estimates in other industries.     
       7 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are represented in actual values.
       2 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       3 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       4 Data shown in columns correspond to the following Nature codes:  Sprains, strains, tears = 123; Fractures = 111; Cuts, lacerations, punctures, Total = 132-133; Cuts, lacerations = 132; Punctures = 133; Bruises, contusions = 143; Heat burns = 152; Chemical burns = 151; Amputations = 1311; Carpal tunnel syndrome = 2241; Tendonitis (other or unspecified) = 2735; Multiple traumatic injuries and
     illnesses, Total = 18; With fractures and other injuries = 183; With sprains and other injuries = 182; Soreness, pain = 1972; All other natures = all remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are based on the Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System 2.01 developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
       5 Includes nonclassifiable responses.
       6 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       7 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal mining are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health
     Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       8 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are represented in actual values.
       3 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       4 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       5 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal
     mining are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective
     January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       6 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are represented in actual values.
       3 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       4 These occupations have at least 0.1% of full-time equivalent employment.
       5 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       6 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal
     mining are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective
     January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       7 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are represented in actual values.
       3 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       4 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       5 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal
     mining are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective
     January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       6 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       7 Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) include cases where the nature of the injury or illness is pinched nerve;  herniated disc; meniscus tear; sprains, strains, tears; hernia (traumatic and nontraumatic); pain, swelling, and numbness; carpal or tarsal tunnel syndrome; Raynaud's syndrome or phenomenon; musculoskeletal system and connective
     tissue diseases and disorders, when the event or exposure leading to the injury or illness is overexertion and bodily reaction, unspecified; overexertion involving outside sources; repetitive motion involving microtasks; other and multiple exertions or bodily reactions; and rubbed, abraded, or jarred by vibration.
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are represented in actual values.
       3 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       4 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       5 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal
     mining are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective
     January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       6 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are represented in actual values.
       2 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       3 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       4 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal
     mining are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective
     January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       5 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       6 Race and ethnicity data do not add to total.  Some cases may be counted as both Multi-race and Hispanic and other race.

       1 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       2 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       3 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal mining are provided to
     BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these
     industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       4 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       5 Race and ethnicity data do not add to total.  Some cases may be counted as both Multi-race and Hispanic and other race.
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       2 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       3 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal mining are provided to
     BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these
     industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       4 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       3 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       4 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.
      Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal mining are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect
     the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       5 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       2 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       3 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal mining are provided to
     BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these
     industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       4 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       3 Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) include cases where the nature of the injury or illness is pinched nerve;  herniated disc; meniscus tear; sprains, strains, tears; hernia (traumatic and nontraumatic); pain, swelling, and numbness; carpal or tarsal tunnel syndrome; Raynaud's syndrome or
     phenomenon; musculoskeletal system and connective tissue diseases and disorders, when the event or exposure leading to the injury or illness is overexertion and bodily reaction, unspecified; overexertion involving outside sources; repetitive motion involving microtasks; other and multiple exertions
     or bodily reactions; and rubbed, abraded, or jarred by vibration.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       3 These occupations have at least 0.1% of full-time equivalent employment.
       4 Data shown in columns correspond to the following Nature codes:  Sprains, strains, tears = 123; Fractures = 111; Cuts, lacerations, punctures, Total = 132-133; Cuts, lacerations = 132; Punctures = 133; Bruises, contusions = 143; Heat burns = 152; Chemical burns = 151; Amputations = 1311; Carpal tunnel syndrome = 2241; Tendonitis (other or unspecified) = 2735; Multiple traumatic injuries and illnesses, Total = 18; With fractures and
     other injuries = 183; With sprains and other injuries = 182; Soreness, pain = 1972; All other natures = all remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are based on the Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System 2.01 developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
       5 Includes nonclassifiable responses.
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees

       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       3 These occupations have at least 0.1% of full-time equivalent employment.
       4 Includes nonclassifiable responses.
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are represented in actual values.
       3 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.

       1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000 where            
       
       N     =number of injuries and illnesses                      
       EH    =total hours worked by all employees                   
              during the calendar year                             
       
       20,000,000=base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers 
              (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
       
       2 Median days away from work is the measure used to summarize the varying lengths of absences from work among the cases with days away from work. Half the cases involved more days and half involved less days than a specified median. Median days away from work are represented in actual values.
       3 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
       4 Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) include cases where the nature of the injury or illness is pinched nerve;  herniated disc; meniscus tear; sprains, strains, tears; hernia (traumatic and nontraumatic); pain, swelling, and numbness; carpal or tarsal tunnel syndrome; Raynaud's syndrome or phenomenon; musculoskeletal system and connective
     tissue diseases and disorders, when the event or exposure leading to the injury or illness is overexertion and bodily reaction, unspecified; overexertion involving outside sources; repetitive motion involving microtasks; other and multiple exertions or bodily reactions; and rubbed, abraded, or jarred by vibration.
       5 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
       6 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2007) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas Extraction and related support activities.  Data for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal
     mining are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.  These data do not reflect the changes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration made to its recordkeeping requirements effective
     January 1, 2002; therefore, estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.     
       7 Data for employers in rail transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.  
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, data may not sum to the totals.
