Footnotes:

(1) Event data from 2003 to 2010 are based on the BLS Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System (OIICS). Event data from 2011 forward are based on OIICS 2.01. Due to substantial differences between OIICS 2.01 and the original OIICS structure, users should be cautious when comparing case characteristics from 2011 forward to prior years. More on OIICS 2.01 can be found here: https://www.bls.gov/iif/oshoiics.htm

(2) Dashes indicate no data reported or data that do not meet publication criteria.
