  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)
