The definitions of occupational injuries and illnesses
and lost workdays are from Recordkeeping Require­
ments under the Occupational Safety and Health Act
o f 1970.

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.

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).

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.

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.

The number o f days away from work or days o f
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.

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.

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
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.
2. Lost workday cases involving restricted work ac­
tivity are those cases which result in restricted work ac­
tivity only.




N

= number of 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 work­
ers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks
per year).

' To maintain the comparability of the 1979 survey data with the data published in previous
years and with 1980, 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 Totals for divisions and 2- and 3-digit SIC codes include data for industries not shown
separately.

‘ Annual average employment for nonagricultural industries is based on the employment
and earnings survey conducted by BLS, in cooperation with the State agencies. The employ­
ment estimates for the services division is adjusted to exclude the nonfarm portion of
agricultural services and nonclassifiable establishments. Annual average employment for
the agriculture, forestry, and fishing division is a composite of data from State unemploy­
ment insurance programs and estimates of hired farmworkers engaged in agricultural pro­
duction provided by the Department of Agriculture. The agricultural production employment
estimate as originally published by the Department of Agriculture is adjusted to exclude
employment on farms with fewer than 11 employees.
5The incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses or lost workdays per
100 full-time workers and were calculated as: (N/EK) X 200,000, where

• Includes fatalities. Because of rounding, the difference between the total and the sum of
the rates for lost workday cases and nonfatal cases without lost workdays do not reflect the
fatality rate.

* 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 pro­
vided by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, Department of Labor, and by the
Federal Railroad Administration, Department of Transportation. Data for some independent
contractors who perform services or construction on mining sites are also included.
n.e.c. = not elsewhere classified.

' To maintain the comparability of the 1979 survey data with the data published in
previous years and with 1980, 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.
’ Totals for divisions and 2- and 3-digit SIC codes include data for industries not
shown separately.

' To maintain the comparability of the 1979 survey data with the data published in previous
years and with 1980, a statistical method was developed for generating the estimates to repre­
sent 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.

The sampling ratios for the various employment-size
groups range from all units above a certain size class
which are selected with certainty through declining pro­
portions in each smaller employment-size group. The
certainty strata are usually the size groups with more
than 100 employees, although smaller size groups may
be included with certainty depending upon the total
employment in the industry. The sampling ratios are
used to select a sample within a State-industryemployment-size group estimating cell.

S©@ ® syreoy

The occupational injury and illness data reported
through the annual survey are based on records which
employers in the following industries maintain under
the Occupational Safety and Health Act: 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 are 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.
Data conforming to definitions of recordable occupa­
tional injuries and illnesses for coal, metal, and
nonmetal mining, and railroad transportation are pro­
vided by the Mine Safety and Health Administration,
Department of Labor, and the Federal Railroad Ad­
ministration, Department of Transportation.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration
is responsible for the collection and compilation of com­
parable data for Federal agencies. Although State and
local government agencies are not surveyed for national
estimates, several States have legislation which enables
them to collect data for this sector.
The 1980 survey sample was composed of approx­
imately 285,000 sample units. Original and follow-up
mailings resulted in a usable response rate of 93 percent.

Estimating procedures and weighting
Using a weighting procedure, sample units are made
to represent all units in their size class for a particular
industry. Each sample member is assigned a weight.
Weights are determined by the inverse of the sampling
ratios for the size class from which the unit is selected.
Each year a small proportion of employees do not
return usable report forms. Weights of responding units
in a sample cell are adjusted to account for the
nonresponding units in the cell. The responding units
are then shifted into the estimating cell determined by
the employment and business activity reported. Data for
each unit are multiplied by the appropriate weight and
nonresponse adjustment factor. The products are then
aggregated to obtain a total for the estimating cell.
Benchmarking. I}ata 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 necessary to “ benchmark” the data to reflect cur­
rent employment levels. The benchmarking procedure
relates the employment estimate used in sampling to ac­
tual employment for 1980. The ratio of the actual
employment to the weighted sample employment is call­
ed the benchmark factor. The weighted characteristic of
the estimating cell is multiplied by the benchmark factor
so that the cell becomes more representative of the
universe for 1980.

Sample
The sample is selected to represent private industries
in the States and territories. The survey results are used
to produce estimates of the incidence of occupational
injuries and illnesses by industry and employment size
for the Nation as a whole.
Because the survey is a Federal-State cooperative pro­
gram and the data must also meet the needs of par­
ticipating State agencies, an independent sample is
selected for each State. The universe frame is stratified
into industries and then into employment-size groups.
For an industry, the establishments in the sample are
distributed to each size group in proportion to the total
establishments and the variation within the size group.




Federal-State e®@perati®n
To eliminate duplicate reporting by respondents and
to insure maximum comparability of estimates, survey
respondents complete a single reporting form which is
then used for national and State estimates.
34

Industrial classification

Reporting units are classified into industries by their
principal product or activity. The data are tabulated ac­
cording to the 1972 edition of the Standard Industrial
Classification Manual, 1977 Supplement.
Reliability of estimates

All estimates derived from a sample survey are sub­
ject to two types of errors—sampling and nonsampling.
Sampling errors occur because observations are made
only on a sample, not on the entire population. The
estimates which are based on the different possible
samples of the same size and sample design could differ
from each other. As part of the survey’s estimation pro­
cess, the relative standard errors, which are a measure
of the sampling error in the estimates, are calculated.
When applied to the estimates, the sampling 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 1 standard error
above to 1 standard error below the estimated value,
and about 19 out of 20 that the estimate would have
been in the range of 2 standard errors above and below
the estimated value.
As an example of the use of relative standard errors,
the total case incidence rate for general building con­
tractors (SIC 15) is 15.5 per 100 full-time workers, with
a sampling error of 1 percent. The chances are 2 out of 3
that a complete census would produce a rate between
15.7 and 15.3, and the chances are 19 out of 20 that the
rate produced from a complete count would be between
15.8 and 15.2. Similarly, the number of occupational in­
juries and illnesses estimated for SIC 15 was 156,100
with a relative error of 1 percent. Thus, the chances are
2 out of 3 that a census would show a number between
157,700 and 154,500 and 19 out of 20 that the number
would be within range of 159,200 and 153,000.




35

Nonsampling errors in the estimates can be attributed
to many sources, e.g., inability to obtain information
on all injuries and illnesses from the sample units,
mistakes in recording or coding the data obtained,
definitional difficulties, etc. To minimize the nonsampl­
ing errors in the estimates, the completed forms are
screened through comprehensive edit procedures. Ap­
parent inconsistencies are checked through follow-up
contacts with the employers.
Publication guidelines

The estimating procedure generates occupational in­
jury and illness estimates for approximately 835 SIC
codes. This publication, however, excludes estimates for
several industry codes if one of the following situations
occurred:
1. Estimates for the industry were based on reports
from fewer than three companies. Moreover, if three or
more companies reported data for the industry, one
firm could employ not more than 50 percent of the
workers or two companies combined could employ not
more than 75 percent.
2. 1980 annual average employment for the industry
was fewer than 10,000. However, an industry with an
annual average employment of fewer than 10,000 was
published if the majority of the employment was
reported in the survey.
3. The relative standard error on lost workday cases
for the industry at 1 standard error was more than 15
percent in manufacturing and 20 percent in non­
manufacturing.
4. Benchmark factor for the industry was less than
0.90 or greater than 1.49.
Data for an unpublished industry were included in the
total for the broader industry level of which it is a part.
Also, selected items of data were suppressed for
publishable industries if the sampling error for the
estimate equaled or exceeded 60 percent.
