Footnotes
(1) 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 result in days away from work, some of which also include job transfer or restriction.
(3) Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
(4) Data too small to be displayed.
