Days-away-from-work cases include those that result in days away from work with or without job transfer
or restriction.

Data for mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System -- United States, 2002) include
establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) 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 requirements
effective January 1, 2002; therefore estimates for these industries are not comparable to estimates in other industries.

Data for employers in railroad transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration,

Data for Mining (Division B in the Standard Industrial Classification Manual,
1987 edition) include establishments not governed by the Mine Safety and Health
Administration (MSHA) rules and reporting, such as those in Oil and Gas
Extraction. 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 OSHA made
to its recordkeeping requirements effective January 1, 2002; therefore estimates
for these industries are not comparable with estimates for other industries.
