Preface

Data for this publication were collected in accordance
with the provisions of the Occupational Safety and
Health Act of 1970. Estimates represent the injury and
illness experience of employers in private sector
establishments for 1978 and 1979. Report forms were
mailed to employers in the year following the reference
year of each survey. Additional data and narrative
analysis will be published later this year.
This publication was prepared in the Office of Oc­
cupational SaMv and Health Statistics 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 Operations with the cooperation of
the regional offices of the Bureau of Labor Statistics
and State agencies participating in the occupational
safety and health statistical grants program.
Material in this publication is in the public domain

Definitions

The definitions of occupational injuries and illnesses
and lost workdays are from Recordkeeping Re­
quirements under the Occupational Safety and Health
Act of 1970.
Recordable occupational injuries and illnesses are:
1. Occupational deaths, regardless of the time be­
tween injury and death, or the length of the illness; or
2. Nonfatal occupational illnesses; or
3. Nonfatal occupational injuries which involve one
or more of the following: Loss of consciousness, restric­
tion of work or motion, transfer to another job, or
medical treatment (other than first aid).
Occupational injury is any injury such as a cut, fracture,
sprain, amputation, etc., which results from a work ac­
cident or from exposure involving a single incident in
the work environment.
Occupational illness is any abnormal condition or
disorder, other than one resulting from an occupational
injury, caused by exposure to environmental factors
associated with employment. It includes acute and
chronic illnesses or disease which may be caused by in­
halation, absorption, ingestion, or direct contact.

Lost workdays—away from work are the number of
workdays (consecutive or not) on which the employee
would have worked but could not because of occupa­
tional injury or illness.
Lost workdays—restricted work activity are the number
of workdays (consecutive or not) on which, because of
injury or illness:
1. The employee was assigned to another job on a
temporary basis; or
2. The employee worked at a permanent job less than
full time; or
3. The employee worked at a permanently assigned
job but could not perform all duties normally connected
with it.
The number of days away from work or days of
restricted work activity does not include the day of in­
jury or onset of illness or any days on which the
employee would not have worked even though able to
work.

Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and/or
illnesses or lost workdays per 100 full-time workers and
were calculated as: (N/EH) X 200,000 where:
Lost workday cases are cases which involve days away
from work, or days of restricted work activity, or both.
1. Lost workday cases involving days away from N
= number of injuries and/or illnesses or lost
work are those cases which result in days away from

volved averaging the data reported by small employers for the 1975,1976, and 1977
annual surveys.
2 Industry division totals include data for industries not shown separately.
* S tandard In d u s trial C la ss ifica tio n M anual, 1972 edition, 1977 supplement.
4 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
* 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 Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of
Labor, and by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transporta­
tion.

* Estimates of fewer than 50 cases.
Note : Dashes indicate data that do not meet publication guidelines. Because of
rounding, components may not add to totals.
The number of lost workdays for the 2-digit sic levels shown in this table can be ap­
proximated by multiplying the number of lost workday cases by the average lost
workdays per lost workday case.
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 in­
cidence rate for lost workday cases appearing in tables 1 and 4.

1To compare 1978 and 1979 survey data with data published in previous years, a
statistical method was developed for generating the estimates to represent the
small nonfarm employers in low-risk industries who were not surveyed. The
estimating procedure involved averaging the data reported by small employers for
the 1975,1976, and 1977 annual surveys.
2Totals for divisions and 2- and 3-digit sic codes include data for industries not
shown separately.
3 Standard Industrial Classification Manual, 1972 Edition, 1977 supplement.
4The incidence rates represent the number of injuries or lost workdays per 100
full-time workers and were calculated as: (N/EH) X 200,000, where
N
= number of injuries or lost workdays
EH
= total hours worked by all employees during calendar year
200,000 = base for 100 full-time equivalent workers (working 40 hours per
per year).

the sum of the rates for lost workday cases and nonfatal cases without lost
workdays does not reflect the fatality rate.
• Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.
7 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 Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Depart­
ment of Labor, and by the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of
Transportation.

1To compare 1978 and 1979 survey data with data published in previous years, a statistical
method was developed for generating the estimates to represent the small nonfarm employers
in low-risk industries who were not surveyed. The estimating procedure involved averaging the
data reported by small employers for the 1975, 1976, and 1977 annual surveys.
2 The incidence rates represent the number of lost workday injuries or lost workdays per 100
full-time workers and were calculated as: (N/EH X 200,000, where
N
= number of lost workday injuries or lost workdays
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).

Technical Notes

cooperative program and the data had to meet the needs
of those State agencies which generated statewide data,
the universe fram e was stratified by
State/industry/employment-size before sample selec­
tion. Optimum allocation was achieved by distributing
the sample to each size group proportionate to the total
employment and the variation among size groups. The
sampling ratios for various employment-size groups
ranged from all units above a certain size class selected
with certainty through declining proportions in each
smaller employment-size group. The certainty strata
were usually greater than 100 employees, although these
may have ranged downward in employment size de­
pending upon total employment in the industry. The
ratios determined for each industry/employment-size
group were used to select a sample within a State/industry/employment-size estimating cell.

Scope of survey

The occupational injury and illness data reported
through the annual survey were based on records which
employers maintain under the Occupational Safety and
Health Act in the following industries: Agriculture,
forestry, and fishing, SIC 01-09; oil and gas extraction,
SIC 13; construction, SIC 15-17; manufacturing, SIC
20-39; transportation and public utilities, SIC 41-42 and
44-49; wholesale and retail trade, SIC 50-59; finance, in­
surance, and real estate, SIC 60-67; and services, SIC
70-87 and 89. Excluded from the survey were selfemployed individuals; farmers with fewer than 11
employees; employers regulated by other Federal safety
and health laws; and Federal, State, and local govern­
ment agencies.
Although the 1979 annual survey covered employers
in virtually all private sector industries, employers with
fewer than 11 employees in low-risk industries were not
required to participate. This was in response to the pro­
posal of the Office of Management and Budget and the
Commission on Federal Paperwork to reduce the paper­
work burden required of employers. To maintain com­
parability with earlier data, a statistical method was
used to represent the previous experience of low-risk in­
dustries in the private sector.
Data conforming to definitions of recordable occupa­
tional injuries and illnesses for coal, metal, and
nonmetal mining, and railroad transportation were pro­
vided by the Mine Safety and Health Administration,
U.S. Department of Labor, and the Federal Railroad
Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation. In
a separate reporting system, agencies of the Federal
Government are filing reports on occupational injuries
and illnesses with the Secretary of Labor comparable
with those of private industry. At this time, State and
local government agencies are not represented in the na­
tional sample.
Of the 285,000 sample units selected to participate in
the 1979 survey, approximately 264,000 or 93 percent
responded. The 1979 estimates were based on reports
from about 96,000 establishments in manufacturing and
168,000 in nonmanufacturing industries.

Estim ating procedures

Weighting. The inverse of the sampling ratios determin­
ed the weight for the size class from which the unit was
selected. By this procedure, sample units represented all
units in their size class for a particular industry. State
and national weights often differed since each sample
unit might represent a different proportion of the
universe. The unit weight for each State was used to
produce estimates; the national weight was used for re­
