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
EH
20,000,000

= number of injuries and illnesses
= total hours worked by all employees during calendar year
= 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 result in days away from work with or without job transfer
or restriction.
3
Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
4
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, U.S. Department of Transportation. 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.
NOTE: Dashes indicate data that are not available or data for incidence rates less than 0.5 per
10,000 full-time workers. Major classifications may include detailed classifications not shown
separately.

estimates for these industries are not comparable with estimates for

Data for employers in railroad transportation are provided to BLS
by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
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.

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

NOTE: Dashes indicate data that are not available or data for incidence
rates less than 0.5 per 10,000 full-time workers. Major classifications may
include detailed classifications not shown separately.
