3/ The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses, or lost workdays, per 100 full-tim e workers,
and were calculated as: (N/EH) X 200,000, where
N
= number of injuries and illnesses, or lost workdays
E
H
= total hours worked by all employees during calendar year
200,000 = base for 100 full-tim e equivalent workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).

Includes fa ta litie s . Because of rounding, the difference between the total and sum of the rates forlost workday cases
and nonfatal cases without lost workdays m not reflect the fatality rate.

The m

N
= number of injuries and illnesses
E
H
= total hours worked by a ll employees during calendar year
200,000 = base for 100 full-tim e equivalent workers (working 40 hours per week,
50 weeks per year).

The median incidence rate is the middle measure in the distribution; half of the
establishments have an incidence rate more than the median rate; half have an
incidence rate less than the median rate.
The middle range (interquartile) is defined by 2 measures; a fourth of the establish­
ments have a rate less than the fir s t quartile rate and a fourth have a rate more than
the third quartile rate.

(N/EH) X 200,000, where

N
= number of injuries and illnesses
E
H
= total hours worked by a ll employees during month or calendar year
200,000 = base for 100 full-tim e equivalent workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).
The monthly incidence rates were derived from the monthly distribution of injury and illness data collected on the 1974 survey form (0SHA No. 103)
and approximations of employee-hours worked by month. Monthly employee-hours were derived by applying percentage distribution factors to the annual
hours worked figure for all employees estimated from the survey data. These distribution factors were based on the number of production workers and
the average weekly hours of production workers for the industry by month.

Incidence rates for "private sector" by month include data for occupational injuries and illnesses for the agriculture* forestry, and
fisheries division, and oil and gas extraction (SIC 13), but exclude coal and lignite mining (SIC 11-12), and metal and nonmetal mining and
quarrying (SIC 10 and 14).

NOTES: Asterisks are shown for estimates of fewer than 50 cases. Dashes indicate no data reported, data not available, or data that do not meet
publication guidelines. Because of rounding, the components may not add to the totals.
Approximations of average lost workdays per lost workday injury and illness case for 3 and 4-digit SIC levels can be derived by dividing the
incidence rate of lost workdays for injuries and illnesses by the incidence rate for lost workday injury and illness cases appearing in table 1.
Lost workdays for the 2-digit SIC levels shown in this table can be approximated by multiplying estimates of the number of lost workday cases
by the average lost workdays per lost workday case.

lost workday case, by industry, 1974 and 1973




140

A ppendix E. G lossary of Term s
Average lost workdays per lost
workday case

The number of workdays lost divided by the number of lost workday cases,

Cooperative program

A program jointly conducted by the States and the Federal Government to collect
occupational injury and illness statistics.

Employment-size group

A grouping of establishments with a specified range of employment.

Incidence rate

Number of injuries and illnesses, or lost workdays experienced by 100 full-time workers.
The rate is calculated as:
_ ^ x 200,000, where,
EH
N = number of occupational injuries and illness, injuries, illnesses, or lost workdays
EH = total hours worked by all employees during calender year
200,000=base for 100 full-time equivalent workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks
per year).
The m edian incidence rate is the middle measure in the distribution— half of the establish­
ments have an incidence rate more than and half less than the median rate. The m id d le
range (interquartile) is defined by two measures— a fourth of the establishments have a
rate less than the first quartile and a fourth a rate more than the third quartile rate.

Lost workdays

The number of days the employee would have worked but could not because of occupa­
tional injury or illness. The number of lost workdays does not include the day o f injury.
The number of days includes all days (consecutive or not) on which, because o f the in­
jury or illness: (1) the employee would have worked but could not, or (2) the em­
ployee was assigned to a temporary job, or (3) the employee worked at a permanent job
less than full time, or (4) the employee worked at a permanently assigned job but could
not perform all duties normally assigned to it.

Medical treatment

Includes treatment administered by a physician or by registered professional personnel
under the standing orders of a physician. Medical treatment does NOT include first-aid
treatment (one-time treatment and subsequent observation of minor scratches, cuts,
burns, splinters, and so forth, which do not ordinarily require medical care) even though
provided by a physician or registered professional personnel.

Occupational illness

Any abnormal condition or disorder, other than one resulting from an occupational in­
jury, caused by exposure to environmental factors associated with employment. It in­
cludes acute and chronic illnesses or diseases which may be caused by inhalation,
absorption, ingestion, or direct contact, and which can be included in the categories
listed below. The following categories were used by employers to classify recordable
occupational illnesses:
(21) Occupational skin diseases or disorders
Examples: Contact dermatitis, eczema, or rash caused by primary irritants
and sensitizers or poisonous plants; oil acne; chrome ulcers; chemical burns
or inflammations; etc.




141

(22) Dust diseases of the lungs (pneumoconioses)
Examples: Silicosis, asbestosis, coal worker’s pneumoconiosis, byassinosis, and
other pneumoconiosis
(23) Respiratory conditions due to toxic agents
Examples: Pneumonitis, pharyngitis, rhinitis or acute congestion due to
chemicals, dusts, gases or fumes; farmer’s lung; etc.
(24) Poisoning (systemic effects of toxic materials)
Examples: Poisoning by lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, or other metals;
poisoning by carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide or other gases; poisoning
by benzol, carbon tetrachloride, or other organic solvents; poisoning by
insecticide sprays such as parathion, lead arsenate; poisoning by other
chemicals such as formaldehyde, plastics, and resins; etc.
(25) Disorders due to physical agents (other than toxic materials)
Examples: Heatstroke, sunstroke, heat exhaustion and other effects of
environmental heat; freezing, frostbite and effects o f exposure to low
temperatures; caisson disease; effects o f ionizing radiation (isotopes, X-rays,
radium); effects of nonionizing radiation (welding flash, ultraviolet rays,
microwaves, sunburn); etc.
(26) Disorders due to repeated trauma
Examples: Noise-induced hearing loss; synovitis, tenosynovitis, and bursitis;
Raynaud’s phenomena; and other conditions due to repeated motion, vibra­
tion, or pressure.
(29) All other occupational illnesses
Examples: Anthrax, brucellosis, infectious hepatitis; malignant and benign
tumors, food poisoning, histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, etc.

Occupational injury

Any injury such as a cut, fracture, sprain, amputation, etc., which results from a work
accident or from exposure in the work environment.

Recordable occupational in­
juries and illnesses

Any occupational injuries or illnesses which result in:
(1) FATALITIES, regardless of the time between the injury and death, or the length
of the illness; or
(2) LOST WORKDAY CASES, other than fatalities, that result in lost workdays; or
(3) NONFATAL CASES WITHOUT LOST WORKDAYS, which result in transfer
to another job or termination of employment, or require medical treatment, or
involve loss of consciousness, or restriction of work or motion. This category
also includes any diagnosed occupational illnesses which are reported to the
employer but are not classified as fatalities or lost workday cases.

Report form

Refers to survey form OSHA No. 103 which is completed and returned by the selected
sample unit.

Standard industrial
classification (SIC)

A classification system developed by the Office of Statistical Standards, Office of
Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President for use in the classification
of establishments by type of activity in which engaged. Each establishment is assigned
an industry code for its major activity which is determined by the product or group of
products, or services rendered. Establishments may be classified in 2-digit, 3-digit, or
4-digit industries, according to the degree o f information available.

State (when mentioned
alone)

Refers to a State of the United States, the District of Columbia, American Samoa,
Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
