Preface

Data for this publication were collected in accordance with the provisions of the Occupational
Safety and Health Act of 1970. The estimates gauge the occurrence of injuries and illnesses resulting
from working conditions over which the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S.
Department of Labor, the Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration of the U.S. Department
of Interior, and the Federal Railroad Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation
exercise statutory authority.
These data represent the injury and illness experience of employers in the private sector for the
years 1972-75. For each survey, report forms were mailed to selected employers in the year fol­
lowing the reference year of the survey. For the years 1972-74, estimates were derived from the
use of definitions and recordkeeping forms contained in the original recordkeeping booklet. Esti­
mates for 1975 are based on definitions and revised forms contained in the booklet entitled
Recordkeeping Requirements Under the Occupational Safety and Health A ct o f 1970, revised
by the Department of Labor for 1975. The Log of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA
No. 100) and Summary of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA No. 102) were changed to
yield additional and more meaningful information about lost workdays. On these forms, lost
workdays are classified in two categories—
days away from work or days of restricted work
activity.
This bulletin was prepared in the Office of Occupational Safety and Health Statistics, Theodore
J. Golonka, Assistant Commissioner, by the staff of the Division of Periodic Surveys, under the
direction of William Mead. Data were collected and tabulated in the Office of Statistical Opera­
tions and Processing with the cooperation of the Regional Offices of the Bureau of Labor Statis­
tics, and participating State agencies identified in appendix C. State data on occupational injuries
and illnesses will be released in a separate publication.

The emphasis o f the analysis in this bulletin is placed on occupational injuries. Where
appropriate, combined injury and illness data are also presented and analyzed. The
recording and reporting o f illnesses continue to present measurement problems. Whereas
an injury occurs at a specific time and can be readily detected, an occupational illness
may develop over a period o f years. An employee may leave the establishment where the
illness was contracted or may work for several establishments and be exposed to different
conditions. Therefore, many illnesses o f occupational origin may not be recognized and
may not be reflected in the estimates. Nevertheless, the recording and reporting o f
recognized illnesses are accurate within the usual sampling considerations.

Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, 1975

T o tal Injuries and Illnesses
I ncidence rates

injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers; one-half
had a rate lower than or equal to 8.9; and one-quarter had
a rate greater than or equal to 18.5 (table 2).3 The mean
or average rate for this size class was 12.6. Quartile rates—
the median is the second quartile— useful for analysis
are
because the mean rate has an inherent bias; a few reporting
units with a high incidence of cases tend to inflate the rate
for an industry. For example, miscellaneous transportation
equipment— industry with one of the highest overall
an
rates—
had a mean rate of 29.0. However, one-half of the
establishments had a rate lower than or equal to 14.8; onequarter of the establishments experienced virtually no
injuries and illnesses; and one-quarter had a rate greater
than or equal to 34.6 (text table 1).
The proportion of establishments experiencing virtually
no injuries or illnesses varied inversely with employment
size (chart 2).4

On the average during 1975, 1 out of every 11 private
sector employees experienced a job-related nonfatal injury
or illness or was killed because of hazards in the work
environment. This ratio can be compared to the ratio of
1 out of 10 in every year since 1972. There was a 13percent decrease in the incidence of occupational injuries
and illnesses between 1974 and 1975, with the rate dropping
from 10.4 to 9.1 recorded cases per 100 full-time workers
(table 1). The estimates reflect the experience of approx­
imately 63 million workers in the private sector of the
American economy.1
About 15 percent of the drop in the overall rate between
1974 and 1975 may be attributable to the disproportion­
ate drop in manufacturing and contract construction em­
ployment. Both of these industries have had relatively
high rates of injuries and illnesses compared to other indus­
tries in the private economy. A continued decrease in the
rate of cases involving no loss of worktime also contributed
to the decline. Lost workday cases (generally the more
serious cases involving days away from work or work
limitations) also showed a slight decline from 1974—
about
6 percent.
Rates for the major industry divisions ranged from 2.2
per 100 full-time workers in finance, insurance, and real
estate to 16.0 in contract construction (chart 1). In man­
ufacturing, an industry division employing approximately
30 percent of the total private sector work force, the rate
was 13.0.

Number of injuries and illnesses

Total occupational injuries and illnesses dropped by
more than 930,000—
from 5.9 million to 5.0 million— de­
a
cline of about 16 percent (table 3). Manufacturing, an in­
dustry contributing over 45 percent of the total number of
cases, accounted for nearly 60 percent of the decrease.
For the third straight year, 97 percent of all recorded
cases were injuries; illnesses constituted the remaining 3
1 Data conforming to definitions o f recordable occupational
injuries and illnesses under the Occupational Safety and Health
Act for coal and lignite mining (SIC 11 and 12) and metal and
nonmetal mining (SIC 10 and 14) were provided by the Mining
Enforcement and Safety Administration o f the U.S. Department
of the Interior; data for railroad transportation (SIC 40) were
furnished by the Federal Railroad Administration o f the U.S.
Department o f Transportation.

By employment size, lower rates were particularly
characteristic of employers with 1 to 19 employees; em­
ployers in this category experienced a rate less than half
that of medium-sized establishments (100 to 249 employ­
ees), which had the highest rate. The rates for the mediumsize class were highest for employers in 3 of the 8 industry
divisions (contract construction; manufacturing; and
finance, insurance, and real estate). The rates for agricul­
ture, forestry, and fisheries generally increased with estab­
lishment size.2

2 The agriculture, forestry, and fisheries division includes data for
agricultural production (SIC 01) and agricultural services, forestry,
and fisheries (SIC 07-09). Injury and illness estimates for agricul­
tural production (SIC 01) represent the experience o f hired farm wor­
kers. Regulations issued under the Occupational Safety and Health
Act (20 CFR 1975) exempted members o f the immediate family of
the farm employers from coverage.
Also, estimates for hired labor employed by agricultural service
firms, such as fertilizer applicators, harvesters, herbicide and pesti­
cide applicators, and other types o f work performed under con­
tract, are included in agricultural services and hunting (SIC 07).

For the private sector as a whole, quartile rates indi­
cated that one-quarter of the establishments with 100 to
249 employees had a rate lower than or equal to 2.9

illness incidence rates for 10 3-digit SIC industries with
highest overall rates, 1975

Incidence rates

During 1975, occupational illnesses occurred at a rate of
0.3 per 100 full-time workers for the private sector, or
about three cases per 1,000 employees (table 5 ).5 This
represents a decrease from the rate of four cases per 1,000
experienced over the past 3 years. The highest rate among
industry divisions occurred in agriculture, forestry, and
fisheries-six illnesses per 1,000 employees. However, twothirds of the illnesses in this division were not serious
enough to require the ill employee to be absent from his
or her job or to be restricted from performing all regularly
assigned duties. Manufacturing industries had the next
highest overall rate—
five cases per 1,000. Finance, insur­
ance, and real estate experienced the lowest rate of ill­
ness— than 0.5 cases per 1,000 workers.
less
Occupational skin diseases and disorders continued to
be the most prevalent of all illness categories reported, with
a rate of one case per 1,000 employees in the private sec­
tor (table 6).6 This is due in part to the speed with which
symptoms appear after contact with irritants. Both the
agriculture, forestry, and fisheries and manufacturing
divisions experienced the highest rate of cases in this
category-Three cases per 1,000 employees. Measurable
rates of more than 0.5 per 1,000 employees for the pri­
vate sector were not experienced for any other illness
category.

Number of illnesses

As in past years, recognized illnesses accounted for a
relatively small portion of total cases—
about 3 percent.
Approximately 163,000 occupational illnesses were esti­
mated for 1975— drop of nearly 20 percent from the
a
200,000 cases estimated for the previous year. Manu­
facturing contributed over 95,000 cases or about 60 per­
cent of all illnesses—
more than double the ratio of man­
ufacturing employment to total private sector employ­
ment. The services division had the next highest number of
illnesses, about 24,000 cases or 15 percent of all illnesses.

percent. Among industry divisions, the proportion consis­
ting of injuries varied slightly, ranging from 99 percent in
mining to 96 percent in the manufacturing and services
divisions (table 4).

Illnesses

Occupational illnesses include any abnormal condition
or disorder, other than one resulting from an occupational
injury, caused by exposure to environmental factors asso­
ciated with employment. The incidence of occupational
illnesses measured by the annual survey refers to the num­
ber of new illness cases occurring during a year, and does
not measure continuing conditions of illness reported in
previous surveys. Cases are recorded only in the year in
which they are diagnosed and recognized as work related.
The recording and reporting of illnesses continue to present
some measurement problems. An occupational illness may
develop over time, during which the employee may have
left the establishment where the illness was contracted
or may work for several establishments and be exposed to
different conditions. However, there has been some pro­
gress in identification, and the recording and reporting of
recognized illnesses are accurate within the usual sampling
considerations.

' For definitions o f mean and quartile rates, see appendix D. The
number o f employers, by employment size, represented by the median
and first and third quartile incidence rates can be derived from
County Business Patterns, U.S. Summary (Bureau o f the Census).
4 A rate o f 0.0 implies that no case of an injury or illness was
reported, or, if cases were recorded, they were insignificant in terms
o f the exposure hours as the rate calculated was less than 0.05 pei
100 full-time workers. Consequently, incidence rates o f less than
0.05 in table 3 appear as 0.0, indicating, for all practical purposes,
no recordable cases.
5 Hereafter in this section, incidence rates o f occupational illness
represent the number o f illnesses per 1,000 full-time workers al­
though tables 8 and 9 show the rates per 100 full-time workers.
Incidence rates are changed to this base because the rates generated
per 200,000 hours o f exposure are, in general, quite small

the same as in 1974. Among industry divisions, the lost
workday case rate ranged from 5.6 in contract construction
to 0.8 in finance, insurance, and real estate.
Employers with fewer than 50 or more than 1,000
employees had lower injury incidence rates, on the average,
then employers in the midsize employment categories
(chart 5). From 1974 to 1975 there were decreases ranging
from 9 to 13 percent in the incidence rates for all employ­
ment-size groups in the total private sector, except for
establishments with 1 to 19 employees, which experienced
a 20-percent decline (table 9).
By industry division, decreases in rates were generally
experienced for most size groups. However, increases
occurred in mining industries at most size levels; in agri­
culture, forestry, and fisheries among employers having
250 to 499 and 1,000 to 2,499 employees; in contract con­
struction among employers having 2,500 employees and
over; and in finance, insurance, and real estate among
employers having between 100 and 249 employees.

Skin diseases and disorders made up over 45 percent of
total illnesses (chart 3 and table 7). Disorders due to
repeated trauma and disorders due to physical agents
contributed the next highest amount— percent com­
27
bined. Although dust diseases of the lungs contributed
fewer cases than any category of illness (less than 1 per­
cent), these cases resulted in the highest average lost work­
days per lost workday case— 36 days.

Injuries
Incidence rates

The occupational injury incidence rate for 1975 showed
a 12-percent decrease from the previous year’s rate, falling
from 10.0 per 100 full-time workers in 1974 to 8.8 in
1975 (text table 2). This was double the percentage de­
crease in the rate experienced between 1973 and 1974.

Of the 67 publishable major industry groups (2-digit
SIC) which could be compared between 1974 and 1975,
57 showed decreases in total injury rates, 9 registered
increases, and 1 remained the same. All of the major
industry groups in contract construction, wholesale and re­
tail trade, and services registered decreases in rates between
1974 and 1975. Among manufacturing industries, lumber
and wood products, an industry with a high rate of injuries
over the years, registered the highest injury rate in 1975,
20.1. Ordnance and accessories had the lowest injury rate—
more than 70 percent lower than that experienced in the
lumber and wood products industry (chart 6).

Incidence rate trends since 1972

Over the 4-year period 1972-75, all industry divisions
for which comparable data are available registered decreases
in injury rates (chart 7 ).7 Since 1972, the injury rates for
wholesale and retail trade have dropped by 18 percent;
manufacturing by 16 percent; contract construction by 15
percent; transportation and public utilities by 12 percent;
services by 10 percent; and finance, insurance, and real
estate by 8 percent. The rate for the agriculture, forestry,
and fisheries division was not available in 1972; however,
since 1973 the rate has dropped by 27 percent.
Of the 2-digit SIC industries registering decreases in over­
all injury rates between 1972 and 1975, over 60 percent
experienced decreases of 12 percent or more (text table 3).
On the other hand, when increases in rates were experienced,
the increase was less than 12 percent in nearly 80 percent
of the industries. The lost workday injury incidence rate for
approximately 75 percent of the industries decreased be­
tween 1 and 11 percent.

NOTE: Estimates for 1972 exclude data for agricultural produc­
tion (SIC 01), coal and lignite mining (SIC 11 and 13), metal and nonmetal mining (SIC 10 and 14), and railroad transportation (SIC 40).
In addition, data for agricultural services, forestry, and fisheries
(SIC 07-09) were included in the services division for 1972. Separate
injury detail for all of mining, except oil and gas extraction (SIC 13),
were not available for 1973.

Occupational injury rates decreased in 7 of the 8
industry divisions between 1974 and 1975; the mining divi­
sion rate rose by 9 percent. The rates ranged by industry di­
vision from 2.2 in finance, insurance, and real estate to 15.7
in contract construction (table 8). Between 1973 and 1974,
overall injury rates had decreased for 5 of the 8 industry
divisions; included in these were the 3 divisions that had
increases in injury incidence rates between 1972 and 1973
(chart 4). Five of the 8 industry divisions showed a de­
crease between 1974 and 1975 in the more serious injury
cases reflected in the lost workday case incidence rate. The
lost workday case rate rose for mining and services, while
the rate for finance, insurance, and real estate remained

7 The 1972 survey, which covered the first full year o f employer
recordkeeping, provides base-year data.

NOTE: Two industry groups showed no change in total case rate, and 9 showed no change in lost workday case rate. Comparisons do not
include estimates for 7 major industry groups because comparable data were not available in 1972. Dashes indicate cells with zero entries.

Between 1972 and 1975, total injury rates decreased
each year in goods-producing industries while fluctuating
slightly in servic . roducing industries. Rates for the more
serious cases—
lost workday injuries—
stayed the same or
increased slightly for both goods-producing and serviceproducing industries during this 4-year period (chart 8).
Estimates for goods-producing industries include the
experience of agriculture, forestry, and fisheries; mining;
contract construction; and manufacturing. Estimates for
service-producing industries cover establishments in trans­
portation and public utilities; wholesale and retail trade;
finance, insurance, and real estate; and services.

average, about 1 out of every 10,000 employees was
killed during 1975 due to a job-related injury or illness.
By relating the number of fatalities to a common level
of exposure, one nullifies the effect of varying employment
patterns; this provides a better basis for comparing the rate
of fatalities among industry divisions over time. Text table
4 provides incidence rates of fatalities per 1,000 full-time
employees for the eight industry divisions for the years
1972-75.

Text table 4. Incidence rates of job-related fatalities, by
industry division, 1972-75

Number of injuries

In 1975, approximately 4.8 million work-related injuries
occurred in the private sector, a decrease of 16 percent or
about 896,000 cases from 1974 (table 3). About 30 percent
of the total decrease, or about 270,000 cases, can be attri­
buted to the decrease in aggregate hours worked from 1974
to 1975. Manufacturing experienced the greatest decrease
in total injuries, dropping by over 530,000 cases or about
20 percent from the 1974 level of nearly 2.7 million
injuries.
During 1975, manufacturing contributed the largest
proportion of total private sector injuries—
nearly 45 per­
cent (chart 9). Wholesale and retail trade accounted for the
second highest percentage, with over 1 million recorded
cases or about 20 percent of total injuries. Contract con­
struction experienced nearly 10 percent of total cases
while accounting for about 5 percent of total employment.
The proportion of injuries involving either lost work­
days or fatalities was similar in 5 out of 8 industry divisions,
ranging between 34 and 37 percent of total injuries.

1 The incidence rates represent the number of fatalities per 1,000
full-time workers, and were calculated as: (N /EH ) X 2,000,000,
where
N
EH

= number of fatalities
= total hours worked by all employees during the
calendar year

2,000,000 = base for 1^000 full-time equivalent workers (work­
ing 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).

Fatalities

2 Includes only agricultural services (SIC 07-09) and excludes agri­
cultural production (SIC 01).
3 Includes oil and gas extraction (SIC 13) but excludes coal and
lignite mining (SIC 11 and 12) and metal and nonmetal mining
and quarrying (SIC 10 and 14).

Incidence rates

The private sector experienced a rate of 0.10 fatalities
per 1,000 full-time workers. This indicates that, on the
4

The total private sector rate has been constant since
1972. Since 1973, the period for which comparable data
are available for all industry divisions, mining industries
have experienced the highest fatality rate—
about twice the
rate for the next highest division, contract construction.
However, between 1972 and 1975 the incidence rate of
fatalities dropped in 4 out of the 6 industry divisions for
which comparisons can be made.

Number o f lost workday injury cases. During 1975, nearly
1.8 million work-related injuries were severe enough to
cause the injured employee either to be absent from his or
her job for one or more days, or to be restricted from per­
forming all regularly assigned duties. For the total private
sector, these two types of lost workday injuries resulted in
a loss of approximately 29.8 million workdays, or the
equivalent of a full year’s work for about 120,000 em­
ployees.8 The number of lost workday injuries fell approx­
imately 9 percent between 1974 and 1975, or a decrease
of about 170,000 injuries and almost 430,000 lost work­
days from the previous year (table 3).
With the exception of mining and services, all major in­
dustry divisions registered decreases—
ranging from 0.3
percent in finance, insurance, and real estate to 17 per­
cent in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries. Mining exper­
ienced the greatest percentage change over the 2 years—
up 23 percent. Manufacturing, the division which contri­
buted the largest number of lost workday injuries (over 40
percent of the total), dropped by about 120,000 cases or
about 14 percent. Among major industry groups within
manufacturing, most of the industries experienced decreases
in the number of lost workday injuries, with 9 of the 19
manufacturing industries registering decreases exceeding
15 percent.

Number of fatalities

There were 5,300 work-related fatalities in the private
sector in 1975. This represents approximately 600 fewer
deaths than in the previous year, or a decrease of 10 per­
cent (table 10). This figure is an estimate of all occupa­
tional deaths occurring in 1975, regardless of the length of
time between the injury and death or the length of the
illness resulting in death.
Four of the eight industry divisions showed declines
in fatalities between the 2 years; three divisions showed
no change, while in one division, wholesale and retail
trade, the number of fatalities increased.
The contract construction, manufacturing, transporta­
tion and public utilities, and wholesale and retail trade
divisions accounted for nearly 80 percent of total injury
fatalities. Contract construction and transportation and
public utilities continued to experience a relatively high
number of fatalities in relation to their share of total
employment, with each division contributing nearly 20
percent of total fatalities while accounting for about 5
percent and 7 percent of total employment, respectively
(chart 10). Manufacturing, with approximately 30 percent
of the work force and over 45 percent of total recorded
cases> accounted for about 23 percent of total fatalities.

Lost workdays due to injuries

Incidence rates. Another measure of lost worktime, the
incidence rate of lost workdays, provides a more mean­
ingful indication of the severity of occupational injuries.
By relating the number of days lost to a common base of
exposure on the job (200,000 hours) a better picture of
variations in lost worktime among industries is provided.
For example, the average number of lost workdays per
lost workday case for the 11 durable-goods industries in
manufacturing showed relatively little variation, ranging
from 15 to 19 days lost. In nearly three-fourths of the
industries, an average of 15 to 17 days was lost. However,
on an incidence rate basis, the same industries varied
widely, from 33.7 lost workdays per 100 full-time workers
in instruments and related products to 156.0 in lumber
and wood products, with no two industries having the
same rate.
Despite the overall decrease in the number of lost
workdays, the incidence rate of lost workdays for the pri­
vate sector increased about 2 percent between 1974 and
1975-from 53.1 to 54.4 lost workdays for every 100
full-time workers. Among industry divisions, rates ranged
from 11.1 in finance, insurance, and real estate to 111.9
in mining. Approximately 80 percent of the major industry
groups registered increases in lost workday incidence rates
between the 2 years; only 20 percent showed decreases.

W o rktim e Lost

Two measures are used as estimates of worktime lost.
Lost workday injury cases primarily measure the occurrence
of injuries, while estimates relating to days lost are useful as
a measure of severity.
Lost workday injury cases

Incidence rates. Between 1974 and 1975, the lost workday
injury rate for all industries decreased from 3.4 to 3.2 cases
per 100 full-time workers. This rate has fluctuated slightly
since 1972. The rate for lost workday injuries ranged from
a high of 5.6 in mining to a low of 0.8 in finance, insurance,
and real estate. Contract construction, the industry with
the highest total injury rate, registered a lost workday in­
jury rate of 5.4. The greatest percentage change in the rate
occurred in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries, where the
rate decreased by nearly 17 percent. Lost workday injury
rates varied by employment size, following a pattern
similar to that of total injury rates, with the highest rates
occurring in the midsize employment categories.

8 This estimate is based on a work year of 250 days.

5

length of time an employee was away from work or could
not perform all regularly assigned duties because of a jobrelated injury. Average days lost ranged from 20 days per
lost workday case in mining to 14 days in finance, insur­
ance, and real estate.

Water transportation services continued to have the high­
est incidence rate of lost workdays among published 3-digit
SIC industry levels, with a rate of 516.6 lost workdays per
100 full-time workers, or more than 5 days lost per em­
ployee (chart 11). As text table 5 illustrates, the industries
with the highest rates of lost worktime in 1975 generally
had the highest rates in previous years, although their rank
among the industries may have varied form year to year.
Six of the ten industries listed as having the highest
incidence rate of lost workdays were also included in the 10
industries with the highest overall rates listed in text table
1. This means that these six industries-roofmg and sheetmetal work; logging camps and logging contractors; iron
and steel foundries; secondary nonferrous metals; ship and
boat building and repairing; and water transportation serv­
ices experienced high levels of occurrence as well as severity
of lost workday injuries during 1975.

Comparison with worktime lost from work stoppages

In 1975, worktime lost from job-related injuries and
illnesses exceeded days of idleness resulting from work
stoppages as a percent of total worktime in the private
sector (text table 6). This represents the second time in 3
years that work injuries have exceeded work stoppages
as a source of lost worktime. Work stoppage data reflect
the number of workdays employees are idle due to a dis­
pute between labor and management which results in a
strike or a lockout. The percent of worktime lost due to
work stoppages exceeded that due to job-related injuries and
illnesses in mining, contract construction, and manufac­
turing-industry divisions that have had relatively high levels
of work stoppages over the past several years.

Number o f lost workdays. Although the total number of
lost workday injury cases occurring in 1975 decreased
by 9 percent from the previous year, the number of lost
workdays dropped by only 1 percent. However, this
relatively small percentage change accounted for a signi­
ficant amount of worktime—
over 405,000 days. Manu­
facturing registered the largest decrease, about 930,000
days or 7 percent below the 1974 level. The transporta­
tion and public utilities division was second, with the num­
ber of days lost decreasing by over 300,000. Agriculture,
forestry, and fisheries experienced the greatest percentage
decrease—
down by over 15 percent from the previous
year. However, the decreases in these industry divisions
were largely offset by increases in mining; wholesale and
retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and services.
As with the number of lost workday injury cases, mining
registered the greatest proportional change in lost work­
days over the 2 years, increasing by more than 32 percent.
The private sector averaged 17 lost workdays per lost
workday case in 1975, up 1 day from the average of 16 for
the previous year (table 4). This is a measure of the average

New measures of lost worktime

Additional information concerning lost workday cases
and lost workdays is available for 1975. A major change
in the Log of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (Form
OSHA No. 100), which became effective January 1, 1975,
requires that loss of worktime be recorded in two
categories—
days away from work or days o f restricted
work activity. Lost workday cases are likewise divided into
two classifications. Lost workday cases involving days away
from work are those cases which result in days away from
work, or a combination of days away from work and days
of restricted work activity. The other category, lost work­
day cases involving restricted work activity, consists of
cases which result in restricted work activity only—
those
days in which the employee reported to work but could not
perform all the duties normally connected with his or her
job.

In 1975, 95 percent of the nearly 1.8 million injuryrelated lost workday cases involved days away from work.
The remaining 5 percent involved restricted work activity
only (chart 12). In all industry divisions, a small percentage
of lost workday injuries involved days of restricted work
activity only. The proportion of lost workday injuries
involving days away from work ranged from nearly 99
percent in contract construction to less than 92 percent in
transportation and public utilities. In four industry divi­
sions, 98 percent of the lost workday injuries involved days
away from work (text table 7). Manufacturing accounted
for the largest proportion of cases involving restricted work
activity only, contributing over 65 percent of the total
number of cases for all industries combined (chart 13).

those cases which do not result in death, but which are
serious enough to require the injured or ill employee to
take extensive time off from work. Data are available only
for injuries and illnesses combined.
Twenty-eight percent of the lost workday injuries and
illnesses involving days away from work resulted in an ab­
sence from work of 15 days or longer. This represents more
than 400,000 cases for the total private sector. Except for
wholesale and retail trade, the cases involving 15 days or
more away from work represented at least 25 percent of
the lost workday injuries and illnesses in each industry
division, as shown in the following tabulation:

In addition to the standard data on job-related injuries
and illnesses collected every year, the occupational injury
and illness survey requests data on related areas of job safe­
ty and health. In response to public interest and requests
by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) and the National Institute of Occupational Safety
and Health, the Bureau of Labor Statistics collected data
in the 1975 survey on the provision of medical examina­
tions and safety training programs by employers. The
analysis which follows deals with the availability and type
of safety training programs and medical examinations,
and their relationship to the industry injury and illness
experience.

For 10 3-digit SIC industries which experienced the
highest incidence rate of lost workdays during 1975, an
average of 37 percent of the days away from work cases
involved 15 days or more. This percentage ranged from a
high of about 67 percent in water transportation services to
a low of 27 percent in sanitary services.

During 1975, over 45 percent of private sector employ­
ees worked in establishments that provided medical exam­
inations. This proportion varied among industry divisions,
ranging from 10 percent in agriculture, forestry, and fish­
eries to over 80 percent in transportation and public
utilities industries (text table 9).

Medical examinations tended to be provided by those
establishments experiencing the greatest incidence of jobrelated injuries and illnesses. For the total private sector,
the incidence rate of 10.9 experienced by those employees
working in establishments that provided medical examina­
tions was over 35 percent higher than the rate for employ­
ees working where no medical examinations were available.
Six of the eight industry divisions registered higher rates
in establishments providing medical examinations; finance,
insurance, and real estate showed no difference; and mining,
going counter to the general trend, had rates nearly 50
percent lower in establishments providing medical exam­
inations.

training (over 85 percent), while finance, insurance, and real
estate had the lowest (about 35 percent). As with medical
examinations, those establishments providing safety training
programs experienced a higher incidence rate of occupa­
tional injuries and illnesses than firms providing no safety
training programs.
Among industry divisions, the distribution of safety
training programs generally followed the distribution of
trade, and services industries providing safety training pro­
grams to the largest proportion of employees (text table 12).
Nearly 30 percent of all workers provided safety training
programs on toxic substance exposure were employed in
agriculture, forestry, and fisheries, and transportation and
public utilities—
industry divisions which, combined, account
for less than 10 percent of total employment. (These pro­
grams involve training for employees exposed to toxic sub­
stances which exceed certain prescribed levels.)
During 1977, there were six industries that could clearly
be identified as high-risk industries. Each of these industries
ranked among both the 10 industries registering the highest
overall rate of injuries and illnesses and the 10 industries
with the highest rate of lost workdays. This means that
(1) they experienced high levels of occurrence of cases, and
(2) when cases did occur, they were relatively severe.
Text table 13 provides information on the provision of
medical examinations and safety training in these industries.
In roofing and sheet-metal work and logging camps and
logging contractors, industries formally associated with
OSHA’s Target Industry Program, safety training programs
were provided to approximately 65 percent of the employ­
ees. Medical examinations were provided to a much smaller
percentage of the work force. Both medical examinations
and safety training programs were provided to relatively
large proportions of employees in iron and steel foundries,
secondary nonferrous metals, ship and boat building and
repairing, and water transportation services.

Medical examinations were more common in industry
divisions where the largest number of workers were em­
ployed (text table 10). The transportation and public
utilities division was the one exception— employed only
it
7 percent of the total work force while accounting for
more than 15 percent of almost every type of medical
examination. Employers in contract construction, an indus­
try that has experienced high injury and illness incidence
rates over the years in terms of both occurrence and sever­
ity, provided a small proportion of medical exams in
relation to the proportion of the total work force employed.
It should be noted that the data on the types of medical
examinations that were made available to workers are not
mutually exclusive. One employer may provide several dif­
ferent types of medical exams.
In addition to requesting data on medical examinations,
the 1975 survey requested information on the provision
of safety training programs for employees. Nearly 70 per­
cent of the employees in the private sector worked in
establishments where safety training was available (text
table 11). The transportation and public utilities industry
had the largest percentage of employees provided safety

Standard Industrial Classification Manual, 1967 Edition.

3/ Annual average employment for nonagricultural industries is based on the employment and earnings survey conducted by the U.S. Department of
Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, in cooperation with State agencies. Annual average employment for the agriculture, forestry, and fisheries
division is a composite of estimates from the BLS survey and estimates provided by the Statistical Reporting Service, U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
4/ The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses, or lost workdays, per 100 full-time workers, and were calculated as:
(N/EH) X 200,000, where
N
- number of injuries and illnesses or lost workdays
EH
■ total hours worked by all employees during the calendar year
200,000 - base for 100 full-time equivalent workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).
5/ Includes fatalities. Because of rounding, the difference between the total and sum of the rates for lost workday cases and nonfatal cases
without lost workdays may not reflect the fatality rate.
6/ Data conforming to the OSHA definitions for coal and lignite mining (SIC 11 and 12) and metal and nonmetal mining (SIC 10 and 14), and for
railroad transportation (SIC 40) were provided by the Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration, U.S. Department of the Interior, and by the
Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
NOTE:

Dashes indicate no data reported, or data that do not meet publication guidelines.
n.e.c - not elsewhere classified.

Totals for divisions and 2- and 3-digit SIC codes include data for industries not shown separately.

2/

Standard Industrial Classification Manual, 1967 Edition.

3/

The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers.

4/

The mean incidence rate is calculated as (N/EH) X 200,000, where
N
= number of injuries and illnesses
EH
* total hours worked by all employees during calendar year
200,000 = base for 100 full-time 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 lower than or
equal to the median and half have a rate higher than or equal to the median rate.
The middle range (interquartile) is defined by 2 measures; one-fourth of the establishments have a rate higher than or equal to the
first quartile rate and one-fourth of the establishments have a rate lower than or equal to the third quartile.
5/ Data conforming to the OSHA definitions for coal and lignite mining (SIC 11 and 12) and metal and nonmetal mining (SIC 10 and
14), and for railroad transportation (SIC 40) were provided by the Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration, U.S. Department of
the Interior, and by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.
NOTE:

Asterisk (*) indicates incidence rate of less than 0.05 per 100 full-time workers.

Standard Industrial Classification Manual, 1967 Edition.

Data conforming to OSHA definitions for coal and lignite mining (SIC 11 and 12) and metal and nonmetal mining (SIC 10 and 14), and for railroad
transportation (SIC 40) were provided by the Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration, U.S. Department of the Interior, and by the Federal
Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.

NOTE: Asterisks are shown for estimates of fewer than 50 cases.
Because of rounding, components may not add to totals.

Dashes indicate no data reported, or data that do not meet publication guidelines.

Approximations of average lost workdays per lost workday case for 3- and 4-digit SIC levels can be derived by dividing the incidence rate of
lost workdays by the incidence rate for lost workday cases appearing in tables 1 and 2.
Lost workdays for the 2-digit SIC levels shown in this table can be approximated by mutiplying estimates of the number of lost workday cases
by the average lost workdays per lost workday case.

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

Includes data for the following illness categories which are not shown separately: dust diseases of the lungs (pneumoconioses),
respiratory conditions due to toxic agents, and poisoning (systemic effects of toxic materials). The incidence rates for these
illness categories are not presented because the rates for an overwhelming majority of the 2-digit SIC levels were less than .05 per
100 full-time workers. These categories are not included in the classification "all other occupational illnesses."

where
N
= number of injuries or lost workdays
EH
= total hours worked by all employees during the calendar year
200,000 = base for 100 full-time equivalent workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).

Appendix A. Scope of Survey and Technical Notes

Scope of survey

fatal cases without lost workdays; and the number of cases
in which employees were transferred or terminated as a
result of a job-related injury or illness.

The survey relates to employers in the following private
industries: Agriculture, forestry, and fisheries, SIC 01-09;
oil and gas extraction, SIC 13; contract construction,
SIC 15-17; manufacturing, SIC 19-39; transportation and
public utilities, SIC 4 1 4 9 ; wholesale and retail trade, SIC
50-59; finance, insurance, and real estate, SIC 60-67; and
services, SIC 70-89, except SIC 88. Excluded from the
survey were self-employed individuals; railroad employers;
employers covered by the Coal Mine Health and Safety Act
and the Metallic and Nonmetallic Mine Safety Acts; and
Federal, State, and local government units.
Data conforming to OSHA definitions for coal, metal,
and nonmetal mining, and railroad transportation were
obtained from other Federal agencies which have statutory
authority affecting occupational safety and health. The
Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration, U.S.
Department of the Interior, furnished data for most of
mining; the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Depart­
ment of Transportation, furnished data for railroad trans­
portation. In a separate reporting system, agencies of the
Federal Government are filing reports comparable to those
of private industry with the Secretary of Labor. At this
time, State and local government agencies are not repre­
sented in the national sample.
About 248,000 national sample units were selected
nationwide to participate in the 1975 survey; of these,
about 28,000 were ineligible to be included in the final
response count. Replies were received from approximately
93 percent of the 220,000 eligible sample units-or about
204,000. The 1975 estimates are based on reports from
about 63,000 establishments in manufacturing industries
and 141,000 in nonmanufacturing industries.

Sample design

The sample is selected to represent private industries
in the States and territories. The survey results are used to
produce estimates of the number of occurrences and inci­
dence rates of occupational injuries and illnesses by indus­
try and employment size for the Nation as a whole.
The universe frame is first stratified into industries and
then further by employment-size groups.1 Because the
survey is a Federal-State cooperative program and the
data must also meet the needs of participating State agen­
cies, the universe is then stratified by State prior to sample
selection. An optimum allocation is achieved by distri­
buting the sample to each size group proportionate to the
total employment and the variation in the size group. The
sampling ratios for the various employment-size groups
range from all units above a certain size class selected with
certainty through declining proportions in each smaller
employment-size group. The certainty strata are usually
greater than 100 employees, although these may range
downward in employment size depending upon the total
employment in the industry. Sample sizes are then adjusted
to produce integral sampling ratios. The ratios determined
for each industry-employment-size group are used to select
a sample within a State-industry-employment-size group
estimating cell.
A segment of each State sample is selected for generating
national estimates. States may choose to expand the sample
to concentrate on a particular industry.

Estimating procedures

Survey questionnaire

Weighting. Weights are determined by the inverse, of the
sampling ratios for the size class from which the unit was
selected. Using a weighting procedure, sample units are
made to represent all units in their size class for a particu­
lar industry. Each sample member is assigned a State weight
and, if it is to be used to produce national estimates, a na­
tional weight as well. The national and State weights are often

The 1975 survey questionnaire requested information
concerning average employment during the calendar year;
total employee hours worked; type of business activity;
the first month of an OSHA compliance inspection; the
types of medical examinations provided for employees;
the types of safety and health training programs in the
establishment; the number of lost workday cases which
involved 15 or more workdays away from work; injuries
and seven categories of occupational illnesses by the num­
ber of total cases, fatalities, lost workday cases, and non­

different since the sample unit may represent a different
proportion of the universe in each case. Weights of respond­
ing units are adjusted in each sampling cell to account for
the nonresponse in that cell. Units are then shifted into
the estimating cell determined by industry classification
and reported employment. Each unit carries into its esti­
mating cell the weight of its sampling cell, which has been
adjusted for nonresponse. Data for each unit are multiplied
by the appropriate weight and nonresponse adjustment
factor. The products are then aggregated to obtain totals
for the estimating cell.

Reliability of estimates

Estimates based on a sample may differ from figures that
would have been obtained had a complete census of estab­
lishments been possible using the same schedules or pro­
cedures. As in any survey, the results are subject to errors
of response and reporting, as well as sampling variability.
Errors of response and reporting are minimized through
comprehensive edit procedures and follow-up contacts
with employers.
The relative error is a measure of sampling variability;
that is, variations which occur by chance because only a
sample of the establishments are in the survey. In con­
junction with the estimates, the relative standard error
serves to define the confidence intervals or ranges that
would include the comparable complete-coverage value.
The chances are about 2 out of 3 that the estimate would
have been produced in the range of one standard error
above to one standard error below the estimated value,
and about 19 out of 20 that the estimate would have been
in the range of two standard errors above and below the
estimated value. The relative standard errors in table
A-l apply to both national incidence rates appearing in
table 1, table 2 (mean incidence rates for “all sizes”), table 8
(1975 incidence rates), table 9 (1975 “all sizes”), and to
national estimates of the number of occupational injuries
and illnesses appearing in tables 3 and 4. Relative standard
errors shown in table A-2 apply to occupational illness
incidence rates in table 5 and table 6 (total cases), and to
the number of illnesses appearing in table 7. These relative
errors approximate the relative errors of the incidence
rates. Because of the complex two-stage ratio estimation
procedure, most relative errors were computed using a
simplified form of the variance estimation formulas. The
more complex variance formulas were used for a few of the
items, resulting in some higher estimates and some lower
estimates of relative errors.
As an example of the use of these relative errors, general
building construction (SIC 15) has an estimated incidence
rate for total cases of 16.1 per 100 full-time workers and
a relative error of 3 percent. The chances are 2 out of 3
that a complete census would produce a rate between 15.6
and 16.6, and the chances are 19 out of 20 that the rate
produced from a complete count would be between 15.1
and 17.1. For the number of job-related injuries and ill­
nesses resulting in lost workdays, the published rate is
5.2 per 100 full-time workers with a 4-percent relative
error. The chances are 2 out of 3 that a census would show
a rate between 5.0 and 5.4 and 19 out of 20 that the rate
would be between 4.8 and 5.6. Similarly, the number of
occupational injuries and illnesses estimated for SIC 15
was 142,200 with a relative error of 3 percent. Thus, the
chances are 2 out of 3 that a census would show a number
between approximately 137,900 and 146,500 and 19 out
of 20 that the number would be within a range of approx­
imately 133,700 and 150,700.

Benchmarking. Data are further adjusted to reflect the
actual employment in an industry during the survey year.
Since the universe file which provides the sample frame is
not current to the reference year of the survey, it is neces­
sary to benchmark the data to reflect current employment
levels.
The benchmarking procedure relates the employment
estimate used in sampling to the actual employment for the
reference year of the survey. The ratio of the actual em­
ployment to the weighted employment estimate is called
the benchmark factor .The aggregated weighted-nonresponseadjusted characteristics of the estimating cell are multiplied
by the benchmark factor so that the cell becomes more
representative of the universe during the survey reference
year.
Federal-State cooperation

Under grant arrangements with State agencies, respon­
dents complete a single reporting form which is used to
generate both national and State estimates. This eliminates
duplicate reporting and, together with the use of identical
techniques at the national and State levels, ensures maxi­
mum comparability of estimates.
Rounding of published estimates

The original tabulations on which data of the number of
recorded fatalities and nonfatal injuries and illnesses are
based show all estimates to the nearest whole unit. Esti­
mates appearing in tables 3 ,4 , 7, and 10 are rounded to the
nearest thousand. Derived percents are computed after the
estimates have been rounded to the nearest thousand.
Industrial classification

Reporting units are classified into industries by their
principal product or activity, determined from information
entered in section V (Nature of Business) of the survey
questionnaire. For a reporting unit making more than one
product or engaging in more than one activity, data for the

age employment of less than 10,000 were published if the
majority of the employment for an industry was reported
in the survey.
3. Relative standard error for lost workday cases at one
standard deviation was more than 15 percent for the
industry level in manufacturing and 20 percent in non­
manufacturing.
4. Benchmark factor for the industry level was less
than 0.90 or greater than 1.49.
Data for an unpublished industry are included in the
total shown for the broader industry level of which it is a
part. In addition to deleting industries, selected items of
data were suppressed for publishable industries when the
relative standard error for the estimate was equal to or
exceeded 60 percent.

The BLS tabulating system generates occupational in­
jury and illness estimates for approximately 800 SIC
industry levels. This bulletin, however, excludes estimates
for several 2-, 3-, and 4-digit SIC levels if one of the follow­
ing situations occurred:
1. Estimates for the industry level were based on reports
from fewer than three companies. Moreover, if three or
more companies reported data for the industry, the em­
ployment of one firm could not constitute 50 percent or
more of the employment for the industry, or two compa­
nies combined could not equal or exceed 75 percent of the
industry employment.
2. 1975 annual average employment for the industry
was less than 10,000. However, industries with annual aver­

questionnaire. If you checked "No" complete Section VII and Section IX.

Periodic general medical examinations-an examination administered by a
doctor, or registered professional personnel under the standing orders of a
doctor, in which medical opinions or conclusions are drawn.
Periodic medical surveillance examinations-periodic screening of employees
who are exposed to toxic substances, hazardous materials, or injurious forces
(e.g., noise, radiation, etc.).

SECTION V III - INJURY AND ILLNESS SUM M ARY
This section can be completed quickly and easily by copying the data already entered on
your OSHA No. 102 "Summary of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses" for 1975 or by
summarizing the data from your OSHA No. 100 "Lpg of Occupational Injuries and
Illnesses".
NOTE: If this report includes more than one establishment, the separate OSHA
No. 102 summaries for each must be added and the sums entered in Section VIII.
However, you should first make sure that each OSHA No. 102 form has been cor­
rectly prepared. The OSHA No. 102 form is the summary of cases which have
been entered on the Log of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA No. 100)
during calendar year 1 975. Please review the Log to make sure that all entries
are correct and complete. Each case should be included in only one of the three
types: Fatalities (Log column 8); Lost Workday Cases (Log column 9); or Nonfatal
Cases W ithout Lost Workdays (Log column 10). The Summary (OSHA No. 102) should
have been completed by summarizing, separately, occupational injuries (code 10) and the
seven categories of occupational illnesses (code 21 through 29) according to instructions
on the back of the Summary form. Please remember that, if an employee's loss of workdays
is still continuing at the time the summary is completed, you should estimate the number
of future workdays he will lose and add this estimate to the actual workdays already
lost.

SECTION V II - SUPPLEMENTARY DATA O N JOB SAFETY AND HEALTH
PART A:

Enter the number corresponding to the first month in 1975 in which your esta­
blishments) had an OSHA compliance inspection. For example, if the in­
spection occurred in March, enter "03". If the inspection occurred in Novem­
ber, enter "11", etc. Include inspections under the Federal or State equivalents
of the Occupational Safety and Health Act by Federal or State inspectors and
other inspections which may result in penalties for violations of safety stand­
ards. Do not include inspections limited to elevators or boilers or those which
are consultative in nature.

NOTE: All cases which, in your judgment, required only First Aid Treatment, even when
administered by a doctor or nurse, should not be included on this report. First Aid Treat­
ment is defined as one-time treatment and subsequent observation of minor scratches, cuts,
burns, splinters, particles in the eye, etc.
SECTION IX
Please complete all parts, including telephone number. Then return
No. 103 form (but NOT your file copy) in the self-addressed envelope.

in the 1975 Survey

The 1975 survey was conducted in cooperation with agencies in 44 States, the District of
Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands which received operating
grants. These agencies shared half the cost with the Federal Government in collecting, processing,
and analyzing the survey data. Also, national data for 3 of the 6 States which did not have opera­
tional grants were collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and for the other 3, by State agencies

Appendix D. Glossary of Terms
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

Mean. Number of injuries and/or illnesses, or lost workdays
experienced by 100 full-time workers. The rate is calculated
as:
N x 200,000, where
EH
N = number of occupational injuries and/or illnesses, or lost
workdays
EH = total hours worked by all employees during calendar
year
200,000 = base for 100 full-time equivalent workers (work­
ing 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).
The fatality rate, however, represents the number of
fatalities per 1,000 workers.
Median. Incidence rate is the middle measure in the
distribution—
one-half of the establishments have an inci­
dence rate more than and half less than the median rate.
Middle range. (Interquartile) is defined by two measures—
one-fourth of the establishments have a rate less than the
first quartile and one-fourth a rate more than the third
quartile rate.

Lost workday cases

Cases which involve days away from work, or days of
restricted work activity, or both.
(1) Lost workday cases involving days away from work
Those cases which result in days away from work,
or a combination of days away from work and days
of restricted work activity.
(2) Lost workday cases involving restricted work activity
