708. Occupational Injury and Illness Incidence Rates

[Rates per 100 full-time employees. For nonfarm employment data, see Table 707. Rates refer to any occupational injury or illness resulting in (1) fatalities (except beginning 1992), (2) lost workday cases, or (3) nonfatal cases without lost workdays. Incidence rates were calculated as: Number of injuries and illnesses divided by total hours worked by all employees during year multiplied by 200,000 as base for 100 full-time equivalent workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks a year)]

NA Not available. X Not applicable.
1 Data for 1980-87 based on the 1972 Standard Industrial Classification; beginning 1988, based on the 1987 SIC; see text, Section 17, Business.
2 Data exclude fatal work-related injuries and illnesses. Because fatalities account for a very small portion of the cases, the inclusion of fatalities in the survey estimates would marginally impact the estimates.
3 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
4 Data conforming to OSHA definitions for employers in the railroad industry and for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal mining. Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.
5 Due to reclassification of air courier operations into SIC 451, data for 1996 are not comparable with earlier years.
6 Includes categories not shown separately.
7 N.e.c means not elsewhere classified.
