Occupational Injuries/Illnesses and Fatal Injuries Profiles
Welcome to the step-by-step guide on how to use the Occupational Illnesses and Injuries Profiles tool
There are four table types:
Case and Demographic numbers will provide weighted estimates of the number of occupational injuries and illnesses resulting in days away from work for the characteristic selected. Estimates will be provided for gender, age group, major occupational group, length of service with the employer, race or ethnic origin, number of days away from work including median days, industry sectors, nature of the injury or illness, part of body affected, source of the injury or illness, event or exposure, time of day, hours on the job, and day of week.
Case and Demographic Incidence Rates will provide incidence rates of the number of occupational injuries and illnesses resulting in days away from work for the characteristic selected. Incidence rates will be provided for number of days away from work, industry sectors, nature of the injury or illness, part of body affected, source of the injury or illness, and event or exposure.
Annual Survey Summary Numbers and Rates will provide weighted estimates and incidence rates for occupational injuries and illnesses for the industry selected and for all industries. Estimates and rates will be provided for total cases; cases with days away from work, job transfer or restriction; cases with days away from work; cases with job transfer of restriction; other recordable cases; injuries only; illnesses only; and specific illness categories.
Fatal Injuries Numbers profile will provide the number of fatal occupational injuries for the characteristic selected. Counts will be provided for employee status (whether the employee was self-employed or not), gender, age group, race or ethnic origin, event or exposure, primary source of the injury, secondary source of the injury, nature of the injury, part of body affected, worker activity, location, occupation, and industry.
- Case and Demographic data are available from 1992 onward
- Annual Summary data are available from 1989 onward
- Fatal Occupational Injury data are available from 1992 onward
Data for participating States and territories are available from 1992 onward. State participation in the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses may vary by year, so the availability of nonfatal state data may vary for some states.
Type and the Order
Characteristic Type refers to industry, occupation, case characteristic, or demographic characteristic. Demographic characteristics and occupation are not available for table 2. Industry is the only characteristic type available for table 3.
Order refers to the sort order of the detailed characteristic chosen. "Name or description" is an alphabetic sort. The other option is a numeric sort order.
Subcharacteristic and Ownership Type
Subcharacteristic is the detailed list of choices for the characteristic chosen. For example, if gender was the characteristic chosen, the subcharacteristics would be "male", "female", and "gender not reported".
Ownership type is based on the State selected. Some States that participate in the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII), collect data for State and Local Government. If the State chosen covers these ownerships, they will be listed under ownership type. If the State does not cover these ownerships, only "detailed private industry" will be available.
The Output types are:
- "Generate Excel table" which will create an Excel file (.xls). You will be prompted to save or open the output.
- "Generate HTML table" which will create an HTML table on screen.
