			WORKPLACE INJURIES AND ILLNESSES IN 2007

      Nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses among private industry employers in 2007 
occurred at a rate of 4.2 cases per 100 equivalent full-time workers—a decline from 4.4 cases 
in 2006. Similarly, the number of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses reported in 2007 
declined to 4 million cases, compared to 4.1 million cases in 2006. The total recordable case 
injury and illness incidence rate among private industry employers has declined significantly—
by 0.2 cases per 100 workers—each year since 2003, when estimates from the Survey of 
Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) were first published using the 2002 North American 
Industry Classification System (NAICS).  
      
Key findings of the 2007 Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses 

  * The total recordable case injury and illness incidence rate in 2007 (4.2 cases per 100 
    workers) was the lowest among private industry employers since 2002, when recordkeeping 
    requirements were revised. The decline is similar to that seen from 1972 to 2001, prior to the 
    recordkeeping revisions.
  * Incidence rates and numbers of cases for injuries and illnesses combined declined 
    significantly in 2007 for several case types: total recordable cases; cases with days away 
    from work, job transfer or restriction; cases with days away from work; and cases with job 
    transfer or restriction. The incidence rate and number of cases for other recordable cases 
    remained relatively unchanged. (See chart 1.)  
  * Both the incidence rate and the number of injuries alone declined significantly in 2007 
    compared to 2006—5 percent and 2 percent, respectively.
  * The incidence rate and the number of illnesses alone each declined significantly in 2007 
    compared to 2006—mainly the result of declines among skin diseases and disorders and all 
    other illness categories, which accounted for 89 percent of the decline in illness cases. 
  * The total recordable case injury and illness incidence rates declined among 5 of the 19 
    private industry sectors—Agriculture, forestry, fishing & hunting; Mining; Construction; 
    Manufacturing; and Health care and social assistance—in 2007 and remained statistically 
    unchanged in the remaining 14 industry sectors.
  * Manufacturing was the only industry sector over the decade spanning 1998 to 2007 in which 
    the rate of job transfer or restriction cases exceeded the rate of cases with days away from 
    work.
  * The total recordable case injury and illness incidence rate was highest among mid-size 
    establishments (those employing between 50 and 249 workers) and lowest among small 
    establishments (those employing fewer than 11 workers) compared to establishments of other 
    sizes. (See chart 2.) 
  * Similar to 2006, 14 detailed industries, each reporting at least 100,000 injury and illness 
    cases, combined to account for nearly 1.8 million cases (45 percent) of the 4 million total 
    cases reported nationally in 2007. General medical and surgical hospitals (NAICS 6221) 
    reported more injuries and illnesses than any other industry in 2007—more than 253,500 
    cases. (See chart 3.)   

      The overall decline in the total recordable case (TRC) incidence rate among private 
industry employers in 2007 was driven primarily by declines among all goods-producing 
industry sectors—Agriculture, forestry, fishing & hunting; Mining; Construction; and 
Manufacturing—together reporting 111,500 fewer cases compared to 2006. Comparatively, 
while not a statistically significant increase, service-providing industry sectors together reported 
nearly 29,000 more cases in 2007 than a year earlier. Health care and social assistance was the 
only service-providing industry sector to show a decline in the TRC rate, falling from 5.8 to 5.6 
cases per 100 workers between 2006 and 2007. 

      One-half of the 4 million injury and illnesses cases reported nationally in 2007 were of a 
more serious nature that involved days away from work, job transfer, or restriction—commonly 
referred to as DART cases. These occurred at a rate of 2.1 cases per 100 workers, declining from 
2.3 cases in 2006. The two components of DART cases both experienced declining rates in 2007 
compared to 2006—the rate of cases involving days away from work fell from 1.3 to 1.2 cases 
per 100 workers, while the rate for cases resulting in job transfer or restriction declined from 1.0 
to 0.9 cases. Other recordable cases—those not involving days away from work, job transfer, or 
restriction—accounted for the remaining half of the 4 million injury and illness cases nationally 
and occurred at the same rate in 2007 as in 2006 (2.1 cases per 100 workers).  

Injuries and Illnesses

      Injuries. Approximately 3.8 million (94.8 percent) of the 4 million nonfatal occupational 
injuries and illnesses in 2007 were injuries—of which 2.6 million (69.6 percent) occurred in 
service-providing industries which employed 79.5 percent of the private industry workforce 
covered by this survey. The remaining 1.2 million injuries (30.3 percent) occurred in goods-
producing industries which accounted for 20.5 percent of private industry employment in 2007. 

      Illnesses. Workplace illnesses accounted for fewer than 6 percent of the 4 million injury 
and illness cases. Private industry employers reported 21,700 fewer illness cases in 2007—down 
to 206,300 cases compared to 228,000 in 2006. This resulted in a decline in the rate of workplace 
illnesses in 2007 from 24.6 to 21.8 cases per 10,000 full-time workers. 

      Goods-producing industries as a whole accounted for approximately 41 percent of all 
occupational illness cases and were responsible for more than 60 percent of the decline in 
illnesses reported among private industry workplaces in 2007. Consequently, both the number 
and rate of illnesses declined significantly for goods-producing industries as a whole in 2007. 
The manufacturing sector accounted for 34 percent of all occupational illnesses cases and 
reported nearly 11,000 fewer illnesses in 2007 compared to 2006. Although the number of illness 
cases among service-providing industries as a whole remained relatively unchanged in 2007, the 
rate of illnesses declined to 17.0 cases per 10,000 employees compared to 18.8 cases in 2006. 


State Estimates

      As compared to a year earlier, TRC incidence rates in 2007 were lower in 12 of 43 States 
(including the District of Columbia) for which estimates were available; TRC rates remained 
relatively unchanged in 31 States; no State’s TRC rate was higher in 2007.   

      The TRC incidence rate was higher in 26 States than the national rate of 4.2 cases per 100 
full-time workers in 2007, lower than the national rate in 14 States, and not statistically different 
from the national rate in 3 States. Differences in industry mix account for at least some of the 
differences in rates across States. (See chart 4.)

Publication Tables and Supplemental Charts

      The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has generated estimates of injuries and illnesses for 
many of the 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-digit private sector industries as defined in the 2002 North 
American Industry Classification System manual. A complete listing of these estimates is not 
available in this release. However, summary tables 1 and 2 providing incidence rates and counts 
by detailed industry and case type (e.g., total recordable cases or cases with days away from 
work), respectively, may be accessed electronically from http://www.bls.gov/iif/oshsum.htm or 
requested from BLS staff at 202-691-6170 or by email at iifstaff@bls.gov. Supplemental tables 
and charts illustrating trends among incidence rates and counts are also available from these 
sources. 

Background of the Survey

      Second in a series of three releases from the BLS covering occupational safety and health 
statistics in 2007, this release follows the August report on workplace fatalities from the Census 
of Fatal Occupational Injuries. A third release in November 2008 will provide case and 
demographic details from the SOII for cases requiring at least one day away from work to 
recuperate. Additional background and methodological information regarding the BLS 
occupational safety and health program, including information such as changes in the definition 
of recordable cases due to revised recordkeeping requirements and the inherent underreporting of 
illnesses, can be found in Chapter 9 of the BLS Handbook of Methods at 
http://www.bls.gov/opub/hom/homch9_a1.htm.

  1 The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 200,000, where                  
     
     N      =  number of injuries and illnesses                   
     EH     =  total hours worked by all employees during the   
               calendar year                                 
     200,000=  base for 100 equivalent full-time workers                 
               (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
     
  2 Totals include data for industries not shown separately.
  3 North American Industry Classification System - United States, 2002
  4 Employment is expressed as an annual average and is derived primarily from the BLS-Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program.
  5 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
  6 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
  7 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 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.
  8 Data for mining operators in this industry are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded.  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.
  9 Data for employers in railroad transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
 10 Data too small to be displayed.
  
  NOTE:  Because of rounding, components may not add to totals.  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.

  2 North American Industry Classification System - United States, 2002
  3 Employment is expressed as an annual average and is derived primarily from the BLS-Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program.
  4 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.
  5 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
  6 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 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.

  1 The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 200,000, where                  
     
     N      =  number of injuries and illnesses                   
     EH     =  total hours worked by all employees during the   
               calendar year                                 
     200,000=  base for 100 equivalent full-time workers                 
               (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)

  3 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 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.
  4 Data for employers in railroad transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.

  1 The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 200,000, where                  
     
     N      =  number of injuries and illnesses                   
     EH     =  total hours worked by all employees during the   
               calendar year                                 
     200,000=  base for 100 equivalent full-time workers                 
               (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)

  1 The incidence rates represent the number of injuries per 100 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 200,000, where                  
     
     N      =  number of injuries                                    
     EH     =  total hours worked by all employees during the                  
               calendar year                                 
     200,000=  base for 100 equivalent full-time workers                 
               (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
     
  2 Totals include data for industries not shown separately.
  3 North American Industry Classification System - United States, 2002
  4 Employment is expressed as an annual average and is derived primarily from the BLS-Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program.
  5 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
  6 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 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.
  7 Data for mining operators in this industry are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.  Independent mining contractors are excluded.  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.
  8 Data for employers in railroad transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
  
  NOTE:  Because of rounding, components may not add to totals.  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.

  1 The incidence rates represent the number of illnesses per 10,000 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 20,000,000, where
     
     N         =  number of illnesses                   
     EH        =  total hours worked by all employees during the calendar year   
     20,000,000=  base for 10,000 equivalent full-time workers               
                  (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
     
  2 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
  3 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 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.
  4 Data for employers in railroad transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
  5 Data too small to be displayed.
  
  NOTE:  Because of rounding, components may not add to totals.  Dash indicates data do not meet publication guidelines.

  1 The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers and were calculated as:  (N/EH) x 200,000, where                  
     
     N      =  number of injuries and illnesses                   
     EH     =  total hours worked by all employees during the   
               calendar year                                 
     200,000=  base for 100 equivalent full-time workers                 
               (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year)
     
  2 Days-away-from-work cases include those that resulted in days away from work, some of which also included job transfer or restriction.

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