1 The 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 Nature codes 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.
