       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
       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 = 123; Fractures = 111; Cuts, lacerations, punctures, Total = 132-133; Cuts, lacerations = 132; Punctures = 133; Bruises, contusions = 143;
         Heat burns = 152; Chemical burns = 151; Amputations = 1311; Carpal tunnel syndrome = 2241; Tendonitis (other or unspecified) = 2735; Multiple traumatic injuries and illnesses, Total = 18; With fractures and other injuries = 183;
         With sprains and other injuries = 182; Soreness, pain = 1972; All other natures = all remaining codes, including 9999 (Nonclassifiable).  These codes are 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.
