  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 Estimates for 2014 represent a break in series as a result of the incorporation of the 2012 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).  Comparison of estimates for 2014 and prior years is not advised below the sector
level due to changes in industry classifications.
  3 Days-away-from-work cases include those that result in days away from work with or without job transfer or restriction.
  4 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
  5 Data for Mining (Sector 21 in the North American Industry Classification System - United States, 2012) 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.
  6 Data for employers in railroad transportation are provided to BLS by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
