       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 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.
       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
