Incidence rates represent the number of injuries per 100 full-time
workers and were calculated as: (N/EH) x 200,000 where

N
EH
200,000

= number of injuries and illnesses
= total hours worked by all employees during
the calendar year
= base for 100 equivalent full-time workers
(working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).

Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
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.

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
