			NONFATAL OCCUPATIONAL INJURIES AND ILLNESSES 
				REQUIRING DAYS AWAY FROM WORK, 2007

(This news release was reissued on March 31, 2009 to correct selected data within the mining and railroad 
industries that were misclassified by BLS.  Except for these industries, the corrections resulted in minor 
changes for the category musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and selected nature, event or exposure, and source 
categories.  Corrections have been made to text in the first bullet under "Key Finding" and in the MSD section; 
charts A and B; and tables 5, 6, 7, 11, 16, 18, 19, 20, 22, and 23.)

	Both the rate and the number of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses requiring days
 away from work decreased from 2006 to 2007, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. 
 Department Labor.  The 2007 rate was 122 per 10,000 full-time workers, a decrease of 4 percent from
 2006.  There were 1.2 million cases requiring days away from work in private industry out of 4 million
 total recordable cases as reported by the BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses.  The
 number of days-away-from-work cases in 2007 decreased by 24,630 cases, or 2 percent, as compared to
 2006 levels.  Median days away from work—a key measure of the severity of the injury or illness—was
 7 days in 2007, the same as the prior three years.  

Key findings for 2007:

      -	In 2007, musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) with days away from work declined by 21,770 cases
	from 2006.  The 2007 injury and illness incidence rate of 35 cases per 10,000 full-time workers
	for MSDs is 8 percent below the 2006 rate of 39 cases per 10,000 workers.  The decrease in the
	number of MSDs is the largest factor contributing to the overall decline in days-away-from-work
	cases in 2007.
      -	Nursing aides, orderlies, and attendants had 44,930 days-away-from-work cases and a rate of 465
	cases per 10,000 workers, which is a 12 percent decrease in the rate compared to 2006.
      -	Laborers and freight, stock, and material movers experienced the highest number of 
	days-away-from-work cases, with 79,000 in 2007, a 7 percent decline from 85,120 in 2006.
      -	Cases with days away from work due to a fall on the same level increased by 10 percent from 2006
	levels, driven by large increases in the number of cases in retail trade (up 4,280 cases, 19 
	percent) and health care and social assistance (up 3,360 cases, 11 percent).

 
Case characteristics

	Case characteristics provide detailed information on the circumstances of workplace injuries
 and illnesses that required one or more days away from work.  The survey uses four case 
 characteristics—nature, part of body, source, and event or exposure—to describe a workplace incident.  

     A nursing aide sprains her back from overexertion in lifting a health care patient.  
                    -------     ----      -----------------------   -------------------
                       |          |                  |                      |                                                                               
                   (nature) (part of body)     (event or exposure)       (source)


     *	Sprains and strains were the most frequent nature of injuries and illnesses (see table 6);
	however, the number of cases has decreased 5 percent from 2006, compared to a 2 percent decline
	for all injuries.
 
     *	Cases with days away from work due to overexertion decreased by 7 percent to 264,930 cases.
	This continues the sequence of decreases in this event for the last five years.

     *	The number of cases of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) decreased in 2007 by 1,070 to a total of
	11,940 cases.  The number of CTS cases in the goods-producing industries decreased to 4,510 cases.
	Among CTS cases in goods-producing industries, there was a decrease of 610 cases in the 
	construction industry to a total of 280 cases.  The number of these cases in manufacturing 
	decreased by 880 cases to a total of 4,170 cases.

     *	The part of the body most often affected by work injuries was the trunk (including the shoulder
	and back) accounting for 33 percent of all injuries and illnesses.  Cases involving the trunk
	decreased by 4 percent from 2006.

     *	Floors, walkways, and ground surfaces were the source of injury or illness for 20 percent of 
	all days-away-from-work cases and increased by 7 percent from 2006 levels.  These surfaces are
	frequently the source of injury when a person falls.  The second most frequent source of injury
	or illness, accounting for 14 percent of the total workplace injuries and illnesses in 2007, 
	was worker motion or position (typically associated with sprains and strains).

Injury and Illness Severity  

	The survey provides data on the length of the absences resulting from injuries and illnesses that
 require days away from work to recuperate.  Median number of days away from work—the key survey measure
 of severity—designates the point at which half the cases involved more days and half involved fewer days.

	The median number of days away from work for all cases was 7 days in 2007, unchanged since 2004.
 Twenty-six percent of all days-away-from-work cases resulted in 31 or more days away from work.
 Goods-producing industries had a median of 9 days, and service-providing industries had a median of 7 days
 (see table 12).

     *	Within industries, the mining sector had the highest median days away from work at 27, nearly 4
	times the median for all private industry.  Transportation and warehousing had a median days away
	from work of 14, double the national median.

     *	The highest median days away from work were for heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers and light
	and delivery service truck drivers, each with 15 days, followed by carpenters and construction 
	laborers with 10 days.  These occupations had 0.1 percent or more of total cases.

     *	Fractures continued to require the highest median days away from work (30 days) in all private
	industries, followed by carpal tunnel syndrome (28 days).  Of all fractures, 48 percent were the
	result of a fall on the same level or a fall to lower level.  Within goods-producing industries, 
	fractures had the highest median days away from work as well (35 days), followed by carpal tunnel
	syndrome (28 days). Service-providing industries reversed this pattern, with carpal tunnel 
	syndrome having the highest median days away from work (28 days) followed by fractures (27 days).

     *	Injuries involving the shoulder took workers a median of 18 days to recuperate for all private
	industries.  Half of the injuries to the shoulder were the result of overexertion.  Workers in 
	the goods-producing industries took a median of 26 days and those in service-providing industries
	required 15 days.

     *	Injuries from repetitive motion continue to be the event with the highest median days away from 
	work for all private industries (20 days) and service-providing industries (19 days), followed 
	by falls to lower level (15 days for private industry, 12 days for service-providing industries).
	In goods-producing industries, falls to lower level required the highest median days away from 
	work with 22 days, followed by repetitive motion (20 days).

     * 	As age increases, median days away from work increase.  Workers age 65 and over experienced the
	longest absences from work with a median of 16 days, compared to 4 days away from work for workers
	age 16 to 24.  

Worker characteristics

	Worker characteristics include gender, age, race or ethnic origin, and length of service with the
 employer at the time of incident (see tables 1, 2, and 8).

     *	Workers who were 20 to 24 years of age had the highest incidence rate at 134 cases per 10,000 
	full-time workers, a 6 percent decline from 2006.  Workers 65 years old and older had the lowest
	rate at 96, a 9	percent decline from 2006.  This compares to an overall decline of 4 percent for
	all cases.

     *	Men accounted for 64 percent of injuries and illnesses and had an incidence rate of 134 per 10,000
	workers, 22 percent higher than the rate for women (105 per 10,000 workers).  Men typically work
	in jobs and industries that have higher rates than women.

     *	The number of injuries and illnesses to Hispanic and White workers in construction and extraction
	occupations declined significantly in 2007 (23 percent and 10 percent respectively).  The number of
	injuries and illnesses to Black workers in this occupation group increased by 7 percent to a total
	of 6,490 cases in 2007.

Occupation  

	Laborers and freight, stock, and material movers experienced the highest number of
 days-away-from-work injuries and illnesses, with 79,000 in 2007.  This was a seven percent decline from
 85,120 in 2006.  Following this occupation were heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers (57,050), nursing
 aides, orderlies, and attendants (44,930), construction laborers (34,180), and light or delivery service
 truck drivers (32,930).  Of these five occupations, only the light or delivery service truck drivers had
 an increase in cases (23 percent) from 2006.  

     *	Ten occupations had more than 20,000 injuries and illnesses in 2007 (see table 4).  These ten
	occupations (including the five mentioned above) made up 33 percent of all injuries and illnesses
	with days away from work in 2007, and have had more than 20,000 injuries and illnesses every year
	since 2003.  

     *	Six occupations had rates of 350 or more per 10,000 full-time workers (see table 23).  These
	occupations had 0.1 percent or more of total employment.

     *	Nursing aides, orderlies, and attendants had the highest rate of injuries and illnesses with 465
	per 10,000 full-time workers.  

     *	The remaining five occupations were laborers and freight, stock, and material movers with a rate
	of 434, nonrestaurant food servers (415), construction laborers (394), light or delivery service
	truck drivers (370) and roofers (363).  

     *	Five occupations had incidence rates over 1,000 per 10,000 workers:  athletes and sports competitors
	(2,049), animal control workers (1,520), hoist and winch operators (1,294), mine shuttle car
	operators (1,289), and psychiatric aides (1,119).  These occupations did not have high numbers of
	cases or high employment.

Industry

	Workers in the goods-producing industries experienced 349,450 injuries and illnesses with days
 away from work and had an incidence rate at 153 per 10,000 workers in 2007.  Ninety-two percent of these
 cases were in the manufacturing and construction industry sectors.

     *	Manufacturing, with 187,200 cases, had the highest case count among goods- producing industries,
	but had	the lowest incidence rate of 133 per 10,000 workers.  Contact with objects was the event
	most often associated with these injuries with a rate of 50 per 10,000 full-time workers.

     *	Construction industry workers experienced 135,350 injuries and illnesses in 2007 and had an
	incidence rate of 190 per 10,000 workers.  Within construction, contact with objects and equipment
	resulted in 35 percent of the injuries and illnesses. 

	In comparison to goods-producing industries, workers in the service-providing industries experienced
 809,420 days away from work injuries and illnesses and had a lower incidence rate at 112 per 10,000 workers.
 Two thirds of these cases were in the trade, transportation, and utilities industry sector and the
 educational and health services industry sector. 

     *	Trade, transportation and utilities industry workers experienced 359,770 injuries and illnesses in
	2007, the highest count of all private industry sectors and had an incidence rate of 158 per 10,000
	full-time workers.  The transportation and warehousing industry had the highest rate (265) of
	injuries and illnesses.

     *	Educational and health services experienced 181,700 cases with an incidence rate of 134.  
	Ninety-four percent of these cases were in health care and social assistance industries.

Musculoskeletal disorders

	Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), often referred to as ergonomic injuries, are injuries or illnesses
 affecting the connective tissues of the body such as muscles, nerves, tendons, joints, cartilage, or spinal
 discs.  Injuries or disorders caused by slips, trips, falls, motor vehicle accidents, or similar incidents
 are not MSDs.  (A more detailed definition can be found on the BLS website http://www.bls.gov/iif/oshdef.htm.)
 MSDs accounted for 29 percent of all workplace injuries requiring time away from work in 2007, compared to
 30 percent of total days-away-from-work cases in 2006.  

     *	There were 335,390 MSDs in 2007 requiring a median of 9 days away from work, two more days than the
	median for all days-away-from-work cases.  This is a decline of 21,770 cases (6 percent) from last
	year, and an 11 percent decline from 2005.  The rate of MSD injuries has also declined 8 percent 
	from 39 cases per 10,000 workers in 2006 to 35.  

     *	Nursing aides, orderlies, and attendants had a MSD rate of 252 cases per 10,000 workers, a rate 
	more than seven times the national MSD average for all occupations (see chart A).  Laborers and 
	freight handlers had a MSD rate of 149 and light and delivery truck drivers had a MSD rate of 117.
  
     *	The MSD rate for several of the major industry sectors decreased significantly from last year
	(see chart B).  The MSD incident rate for management of companies and enterprises decreased 32 percent (to 11), 
	construction decreased 16 percent (to 41), and manufacturing decreased 10 percent (to 41).

Notes

	This release is the third in a series of three releases from the BLS covering occupational safety
 and health statistics in 2007.  The first release, in August 2008, covered work-related fatalities from 
 the 2007 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries.  In October 2008, the Survey of Occupational Injuries and
 Illnesses reported the total recordable cases for occupational injuries and illnesses for 2007.  Additional
 background and methodological information regarding the BLS occupational safety and health program can be
 found in Chapter 9 of the BLS Handbook of Methods at http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/pdf/homch9.pdf.

	With the 2007 Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII), BLS added selected injury and 
 illness rates by occupation at the 2, 3, and 4 digit detailed occupation level for the Nation and at the
 occupational group level for the Nation and States.  

	Because of space limitations, 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 on 202-691-6170,
 iifstaff@bls.gov, and the BLS Internet site at http://www.bls.gov/iif/home.htm.

       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, 2002) 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 Information is not shown separately for injured workers under age 14; they accounted for fewer than 50 cases.
       
       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, 2002) 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 Information is not shown separately for injured workers under age 14; they accounted for fewer than 50 cases.
       6 Data too small to be displayed.
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, percentages may not add to 100.

       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, 2002) 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 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, 2002) 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.

       3 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2002) 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 Selected estimates for this category were affected by the March 2009 revision, see note below.
       
       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.
       This table was reissued in March 2009 to revise selected estimates within the Mining (NAICS 21) and Railroad Transportation (NAICS 482) industries, and in their respective higher level industry sectors. Characteristic categories affected
     by the revisions, that appear in this table, are footnoted.

       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, 2002) 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 Selected estimates for this category were affected by the March 2009 revision, see note below.
       6 Data too small to be displayed.
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.  Because of rounding and data exclusion of nonclassifiable responses, percentages may not add to 100.
       This table was reissued in March 2009 to revise selected estimates within the Mining (NAICS 21) and Railroad Transportation (NAICS 482) industries, and in their respective higher level industry sectors. Characteristic categories affected
     by the revisions, that appear in this table, are footnoted.

       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, 2002) 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 Selected estimates for this category were affected by the March 2009 revision, see note below.
       7 Data too small to be displayed.
       
       NOTE:  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.                                 
       This table was reissued in March 2009 to revise selected estimates within the Mining (NAICS 21) and Railroad Transportation (NAICS 482) industries, and in their respective higher level industry sectors. Characteristic categories affected
     by the revisions, that appear in this table, are footnoted.

       3 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System-- United States, 2002) 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.

       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, 2002) 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 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, 2002) 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 Data too small to be displayed.
       
       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 Data shown in columns correspond to the following Nature codes:  Sprains, strains, tears = 021; Fractures = 012; Cuts, lacerations, punctures = 034, 037; Cuts,
 lacerations = 034; Punctures = 037; Bruises, contusions = 043; Heat burns = 053; Chemical burns = 051; Amputations = 031; Carpal tunnel syndrome = 1241; Tendonitis =
 1733; Multiple traumatic injuries and illnesses, Total = 080-089; With fractures, burns, and other injuries = 083, 084; With sprains and bruises = 082; Back pain and
 pain, except back, Total = 0972, 0973; Back pain, hurt back only = 0972; All other natures = all remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are
 based on the 1992 Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
   4 Selected estimates for this category were affected by the March 2009 revision, see note below.
   5 Includes nonclassifiable responses.
   6 Information is not shown separately for injured workers under age 14; they accounted for fewer than 50 cases.
   7 Data too small to be displayed.
   
   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.
   This table was reissued in March 2009 to revise selected estimates within the Mining (NAICS 21) and Railroad Transportation (NAICS 482) industries, and in their
 respective higher level industry sectors. Characteristic categories affected by the revisions, that appear in this table, are footnoted.

       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 Data shown in columns correspond to the following Part of body codes:  Head, Total = 00-09; Eyes = 032; Neck = 10-19; Trunk, Total = 20-29; Back = 23; Shoulder = 21; Upper extremities, Total = 30-39; Arm = 31; Finger = 34; Hand, except finger = 33; Wrist
     = 32; Lower extremities, Total = 40-49; Knee = 412; Ankle = 42; Foot, toe = 43, 44; Body systems = 5; Multiple body parts = 8; All other body parts = remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are based on the 1992 Occupational Injury
     and Illness Classification System developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
       4 Includes nonclassifiable responses.
       5 Information is not shown separately for injured workers under age 14; they accounted for fewer than 50 cases.
       
       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 Data shown in columns correspond to the following Source codes: Chemicals and chemical products = 00-09; Containers = 10-19; Furniture and
fixtures = 20-29; Machinery = 30-39; Parts and materials = 40-49; Person, injured or ill worker = 56; Worker motion or position = 562; Person, other
than injured or ill worker = 57; Health care patient = 573; Floors, walkways, or ground surfaces = 62; Handtools = 71-73; Vehicles = 80-89; All other
sources = all remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are based on the 1992 Occupational Injury and Illness Classification
System developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  4 Selected estimates for this category were affected by the March 2009 revision, see note below.
  5 Includes nonclassifiable responses.
  6 Information is not shown separately for injured workers under age 14; they accounted for fewer than 50 cases.
  7 Data too small to be displayed.
  
  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.
  This table was reissued in March 2009 to revise selected estimates within the Mining (NAICS 21) and Railroad Transportation (NAICS 482) industries,
and in their respective higher level industry sectors. Characteristic categories affected by the revisions, that appear in this table, are footnoted.

  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 Data shown in columns correspond to the following Event codes: Contact with objects, Total = 00-09; Struck by object = 020-029; Struck against object = 010-019; Caught in or compressed or
crushed = 030-049; Fall to lower level = 110-119; Fall on same level = 130-139; Slips or trips without fall = 215; Overexertion, Total = 220-229; In lifting = 221; Repetitive motion = 230-239;
Exposure to harmful substance or environment = 30-39; Transportation accidents = 40-49; Highway accident = 41; Fires and explosions = 50-52; Assaults and violent acts, Total = 60-63; Assaults by
person = 61; All other assaults = 60, 62, and 63; Assaults by animal = 63; All other events = all remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are based on the 1992
Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  4 Selected estimates for this category were affected by the March 2009 revision, see note below.
  5 Includes nonclassifiable responses.
  6 Information is not shown separately for injured workers under age 14; they accounted for fewer than 50 cases.
  7 Data too small to be displayed.
  
  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.
  This table was reissued in March 2009 to revise selected estimates within the Mining (NAICS 21) and Railroad Transportation (NAICS 482) industries, and in their respective higher level industry
sectors. Characteristic categories affected by the revisions, that appear in this table, are footnoted.

  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 = 021; Fractures = 012; Cuts, lacerations, punctures = 034, 037; Cuts,
lacerations = 034; Punctures = 037; Bruises, contusions = 043; Heat burns = 053; Chemical burns = 051; Amputations = 031; Carpal tunnel syndrome = 1241; Tendonitis =
1733; Multiple traumatic injuries and illnesses, Total = 080-089; With fractures, burns, and other injuries = 083, 084; With sprains and bruises = 082; Back pain and
pain, except back, Total = 0972, 0973; Back pain, hurt back only = 0972; All other natures = all remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are
based on the 1992 Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  5 Selected estimates for this category were affected by the March 2009 revision, see note below.
  6 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.
  This table was reissued in March 2009 to revise selected estimates within the Mining (NAICS 21) and Railroad Transportation (NAICS 482) industries, and in their
respective higher level industry sectors. Characteristic categories affected by the revisions, that appear in this table, are footnoted.

       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 Part of body codes:  Head, Total = 00-09; Eyes = 032; Neck = 10-19; Trunk, Total = 20-29; Back = 23; Shoulder = 21; Upper extremities, Total = 30-39; Arm = 31; Finger = 34; Hand, except finger = 33; Wrist
     = 32; Lower extremities, Total = 40-49; Knee = 412; Ankle = 42; Foot, toe = 43, 44; Body systems = 5; Multiple body parts = 8; All other body parts = remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are based on the 1992 Occupational Injury
     and Illness Classification System 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                   
         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 Source codes: Chemicals and chemical products = 00-09; Containers = 10-19; Furniture and
fixtures = 20-29; Machinery = 30-39; Parts and materials = 40-49; Person, injured or ill worker = 56; Worker motion or position = 562; Person, other
than injured or ill worker = 57; Health care patient = 573; Floors, walkways, or ground surfaces = 62; Handtools = 71-73; Vehicles = 80-89; All other
sources = all remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are based on the 1992 Occupational Injury and Illness Classification
System developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  5 Selected estimates for this category were affected by the March 2009 revision, see note below.
  6 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.
  This table was reissued in March 2009 to revise selected estimates within the Mining (NAICS 21) and Railroad Transportation (NAICS 482) industries,
and in their respective higher level industry sectors. Characteristic categories affected by the revisions, that appear in this table, are footnoted.

  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 Event codes: Contact with objects, Total = 00-09; Struck by object = 020-029; Struck against object = 010-019; Caught in or compressed or
crushed = 030-049; Fall to lower level = 110-119; Fall on same level = 130-139; Slips or trips without fall = 215; Overexertion, Total = 220-229; In lifting = 221; Repetitive motion = 230-239;
Exposure to harmful substance or environment = 30-39; Transportation accidents = 40-49; Highway accident = 41; Fires and explosions = 50-52; Assaults and violent acts, Total = 60-63; Assaults by
person = 61; All other assaults = 60, 62, and 63; Assaults by animal = 63; All other events = all remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are based on the 1992
Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  5 Selected estimates for this category were affected by the March 2009 revision, see note below.
  6 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.
  This table was reissued in March 2009 to revise selected estimates within the Mining (NAICS 21) and Railroad Transportation (NAICS 482) industries, and in their respective higher level industry
sectors. Characteristic categories affected by the revisions, that appear in this table, are footnoted.
