Introduction
In 1971, the Bureau of Labor Statistics was assigned
the responsibility for conducting a new and vastly ex­
panded annual survey of work injuries and illnesses. The
survey is required by the Occupational Safety and
Health Act (OSHA) of 1970 which charges the Secretary
of Labor with the obligation to “develop and maintain
an effective program of collection, compilation, and
analysis of occupational safety and health statistics.”
Work injury statistics collected on a voluntary basis
represent the oldest ongoing program in the BLS, dating
from 1910. But the new Act represents a radical change
in approach to occupational safety and health: It
involves setting and enforcing standards, intergovern­
mental cooperation, research, and the collection of
statistics based on the mandatory recording of injuries
and illnesses by firms in the sample survey. And by
including nearly all employers, the records provide a
uniform base for nearly 60 million workers at about
5 million workplaces.
In order to create an awareness by workers and
employers of the seriousness and the nature of unsafe
and unhealthful working conditions, the Act requires
the keeping of records relating to occupational
injuries and illnesses. The records to be kept are: A
log, supplementary record, and summary of occupa­
tional injuries and illnesses. None of these records is
a report form and all must remain at the workplace
for 5 years to be available for examination by repre­
sentatives of the Department of Labor or the Depart­




ment of Health, Education, and Welfare, or States
accorded jurisdiction under the Act.
The definition of recordable injuries and illnesses
has been widened in scope to present a more realistic
picture of losses incurred. Every work-related illness
and those injuries which involve loss of consciousness,
require medical treatment (excluding first-aid cases),
or prevent an employee from carrying out all of his
regularly assigned duties must be recorded.
The BLS survey involves an annual sample of about
600.000 reports. Of these, about 200,000 are needed
to generate national estimates of injuries and illnesses;
in addition, States and jurisdictions survey about
400.000 so they can measure job-relateu injuries
and illnesses in their areas. The reports are
now collected by 53 jurisdictions, including
48 States. The BLS collects reports from
two States.
The 1972 survey covered the first full year of
recordkeeping under OSHA. Although estimates were
published for 1971 (BLS Bulletin 1798), data for
later years should not be compared with 1971 estimates
which covered only 6 months and may not have reflected
seasonal patterns. In addition, the last half of 1971
marked the first period of employer recordkeeping
and some confusion over interpretation of definitions
occurred. Therefore, the results of future surveys
should be compared with estimates from the 1972
survey presented in this bulletin.




Results of 1972 Survey of Occupational
Injuries and Illnesses
Injury and illness rates

Workers in the private nonfarm economy suffered
10.9 occupational injuries and illnesses for each 100 full­
time workers in 1972. (See table 1.) This rate indicates
that, on the average, 1 out of every 10 employees was
killed, injured, or became ill as a result of exposure to
the work environment. In more than 2 out of 3 instances,
the injury or illness was not fatal and did not involve any
loss of worktime beyond the day of the occurrence, and
in more than 9 out of 10 cases, the disability was caused
by an injury rather than an illness.
The overall rate for manufacturing, 15.6, was about
43 percent higher than that for all industries. (See
chart 1.) Overall incidence rates for the major industry
groups (2-digit SIC) within manufacturing ranged from
7.5 in apparel and other textile products to 25.4 in lum­
ber and wood products. (See chart 2.) Within manufac­
turing, the incidence of work-connected injuries and ill­
nesses differs markedly between the durable and non­
durable goods sectors. The rate for durable goods was
17.5 and for nondurable goods, 12.9. Mechanization,
product orientation, and production processes are im­
portant factors contributing to these differences.
Of the 3-digit manufacturing SIC levels for which
incidence rates are published in table 1,11 were
identified as having the highest overall rates. These 11
industry levels were distributed among the major
industry groups as follows: One in food and kindred
products (meat products, a rate of 28.2), three in
lumber and wood products (logging camps and logging
contractors— 32.5, millwork, plywood, and related
products— 26.3, and sawmills and planing mills—
24.9); one in leather and leather products (leather
tanning and finishing— 24.9); three in primary metal
industries (iron and steel foundries— 32.2; secondary
nonferrous metals— 30.9, and nonferrous foundries—
26.4); one in fabricated metal products (fabricated
structural metal products— 25.9); and two in transpor­
tation equipment (miscellaneous transportation equip­
ment— 36.5, and ship and boatbuilding and repairing—
28.6).




During 1972, contract construction had the highest
rate of any industry division— 19.0 per 100 full-time
workers. vThe three major industry groups within con­
tract construction— general building, heavy construc­
tion, and special trade contractors had rates o f 18.5,
19.6, and 19.0, respectively. The best safety and health
record in this division occurred in painting, paper­
hanging, and decorating, with a rate of 11.2. On the
other hand, 5 of the 11 nonmanufacturing 3-digit SIC levels
with the highest incidence rates occurred in construc­
tion— roofing and sheet metal work— 28.9; heavy con­
struction, n.e.c.— 21.3; miscellaneous special trade
contractors— 20.5; plumbing, heating, and air condi­
tioning—-19.9; and water well drilling— 19.1.
In the transportation and public utilities industries,
occupational injuries and illnesses occurred at a rate of
10.8. The overall incidence rates ranged from a low of
2.4 in radio and television broadcasting to a high of 27.8
in sanitary services. In addition to sanitary services,
three other industries in this division were among the
11 with the highest incidence rates— water transportation
services— 26.9, public warehousing— 19.2, and miscel­
laneous transportation services— 18.8.
The remaining 3-digit nonmanufacturing industries
among those with the highest incidence rates were oil
and gas field services, and miscellaneous repair shops
with rates of 20.1.
Finance, insurance, and real estate employers which
traditionally have recorded the lowest rates of jobrelated injuries and illnesses continued this trend with
a rate of 2.5. However, one industry group in this
division, operative builders, recorded a rate of 14.7—
almost six times higher than the rate for the division.
The rate for operative builders (those builders who
engage in construction for sale on their own account
rather than as contractors) was more than 20 percent
lower than the rate for general building contractors.
Of the nine major industry groups that comprise
the wholesale and retail trade division, five had inci­
dence rates below the overall rate for the division—
8.4: Retail general merchandise— 8.3, apparel and
accessory stores— 2.1; furniture and home furnishings

stores— 5.5, eating and drinking places— 6.7, and mis­
cellaneous retail stores— 4.3. The highest rates among
major groups occurred in building materials and
farm equipment, and food stores— 12.3 and 12.1,
respectively.
Distribution of incidence rates by employment size

Incidence rates by employment size within industry
divisions also help to pinpoint safety and health prob­
lem areas. For all industries surveyed, the highest
overall incidence rate occurred in establishments having
between 100 and 249 employees. (See table 2 and chart
3.) Except for contract construction and manufacturing
where the rates peaked in this employee-size group,
other industry divisions showed different incidence
patterns. In wholesale and retail trade, and services, for
example, establishments with 500 to 999 employees
had the highest rate. But for transportation and public
utilities, and finance, insurance, and real estate, no
single employment level stood out among the eight
employment-size groups. There were only slight dif­
ferences among the highest rates for establishments
in transportation and public utilities having 20 to 99
employees and establishments in finance, insurance,
and real estate having 50 to 2,499 employees.
In the private nonfarm sector in 1972 over 26
percent of the employees worked in establishments
which experienced virtually no injuries or illnesses.
(See chart 4.) In establishments employing fewer than
20 employees, around 82.3 percent had zero rates
during 1972, compared with 46.6 percent in the
20 to 49 employee range. (See chart 5.) For
combined employee-size groups, 18.1 percent of
the establishments in the 50 to 499 employee
range and 1.3 percent having 500 employees or
more had zero rates. The majority of establish­
ments employing 500 workers or more had re­
cordable injury and illness rates between 0.1 and
9.9 per 100 full-time workers. These large firms appear
capable of mounting effective safety programs which
limit the occurrence of work-related injuries and
illnesses. A look at the data from another perspec­
tive, that of the median, suggests that for at least
one-half of all establishments, virtually no recordable
injuries or illnesses occurred.1 The median rate for the
private nonfarm sector in 1972 was 0.0 compared
with the mean rate of 10.9.2 (See table 3.) Statisti­
cally, the mean has an inherent upward bias because
a few reporting units with high incidence of cases
tend to push up the rate for an industry.
The pattern of quartile incidence varied among
industry divisions. In contract construction, at least
one-half the establishments had zero rates. However,




the median rate was nearly comparable to the mean
rate in the 50 to 249 employee category.
Of the 21 major industry groups in manufacturing,
only two did not have a median rate of zero for
establishments with 1 to 19 employees— primary
metal industries with 10.6 and fabricated metal products
with 6.1.
At least one-half of all establishments in the trans­
portation and public utilities industries had a rate of
0.0. Three-fourths of the under-20 employee estab­
lishments had virtually no recordable cases.
About three-fourths of the establishments
in wholesale and retail trade with fewer than
20 workers had zero rates during 1972. Al­
though the overall rate for the industry was
8.4, one-half of all establishments in the 20
to 49 employee group had 1.6 or fewer in­
juries or illnesses per 100 full-time workers.
In the finance, insurance, and real estate
industries, at least three-fourths of all estab­
lishments with fewer than 50 employees were
virtually without injury or illness. On the other
hand, one-fourth of the establishments with 250
workers or more had incidence rates more than
50 percent higher than the mean for the in­
dustry.
Another area of business activity commonly
regarded as a “low hazard” sector of the ec­
onomy— the services industries-—demonstrated
that at least 75 percent of small establish­
ments (1 to 19 employees) had a rate of 0.0.

The mean incidence rate is calculated as: N/EH X
200,000, where
N = number of injuries and/or illnesses
EH = total hours worked by all employees during calendar
1972
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
more than the median rate; half have an incidence rate less than
the median rate. The middle range (interquartile) is defined by
two measures— a fourth of the establishments have a rate less
than the first quartile rate and a fourth a rate more than the
third quartile rate.
The number of employers by employment size repre­
sented by the median, and first and third quartile incidence
rates can be derived from County Business Patterns, 1972,
U.S. Summary CBP-72-1 (Bureau of Census, 197 3), pp. 14-27.
2
A rate of 0.0 implies that no case of an injury or illness
was reported for 1972 or, if recordable cases occurred, they
were insignificant in terms of the exposure hours as the rate
calculated was less than .05 per 100 full-time workers. Con­
sequently, incidence rates of less than .05 appear as 0.0 in
table 3 indicating, for all practical purposes, no recordable cases.

Incidence rates by category of illness

The incidence rate of all categories of illnesses was
.4 per 100 full-time workers or about four cases per
1.000 full-time workers in the private nonfarm sector.3
(See table 4.) By industry division, the rates ranged
from a high of 7 per 1,000 full-time workers in manu­
facturing to a low of 1 in finance, insurance, and real
estate.
The highest rates for all occupational illnesses among
the major industry groups were in forestry— 14 per
1.000 full-time workers; agricultural services and
hunting, and rubber and plastics products— 10; and
chemicals and allied products, and transportation
equipment— 9.
Within contract construction, an estimated 7 illnesses
per 1,000 full-time workers occurred in both heavy and
special trade construction. In the transportation and
public utilities industries, transportation by air, with a
rate of 5, registered the highest illness rate in the divi­
sion. A rate of 3 occurred in four of the nine industries
within wholesale and retail trade— wholesale trade,
building materials and farm equipment, automotive
dealers and service stations, and eating and drinking
places. In the finance, insurance, and real estate
division, the real estate group had a considerably higher
rate— 4 per 1,000 full-time workers— than any other
industry group.
Of the seven categories of occupational illnesses,4 no
major industry group had a rate for dust diseases of the
lungs that equaled or exceeded .5 per 1,000 full-time
workers. The rate for poisoning (systemic effects of
toxic materials) was less than .5 in all major groups
except agricultural services and hunting— 1 per 1,000
full-time workers. Measurable rates of respiratory
conditions due to toxic agents occurred only in seven
major industry groups, all of which were engaged in
manufacturing activities.
The majority of illnesses recorded occurred in one
category: Occupational skin diseases or disorders. The
industry with the highest incidence for this type of
illness, forestry, had 11 cases per 1,000 full-time
workers compared to 2 for all industries surveyed.
The second highest rate was rubber and plastics
products— 6, followed by chemicals and allied
products, and agricultural services and hunting—
5 cases per 1,000 full-time workers in each industry.
Rates for disorders from physical agents usually
occurred throughout the construction industries, most
manufacturing groups, and agricultural services and
forestry. Disorders due to repeated trauma occurred
most frequently in transportation equipment with
a rate of 3. Two cases per 1,000 full-time workers
appeared in food and kindred products, electrical



equipment and supplies, and transportation by air.
For all other occupational illnesses not specifically
categorized, the highest incidence rate, 3, occurred in
both heavy and special trade construction. Heart
attacks related to the work environment would fall
within this illness category.
Number of injuries and illnesses

Nearly 5.7 million recordable occupational injuries
and illnesses occurred in 1972 in the industries surveyed;
of these more than 1.7 million cases involved lost work­
days and approximately 5,500 resulted in fatalities.
(See table 5.)
Estimates derived from the 1972 survey are not
comparable with similar data published by the National
Safety Council (NSC) for 1972.5 The NSC estimates of
2.4 million cases included fatalities, permanent im­
pairments, and injuries or illnesses which are disabling
beyond the day of the accident. BLS estimates encom­
passed the NSC cases as well as other lost workday cases
in which the employee worked but could not perform all
the duties of his regularly assigned job. Also, the BLS
estimates included all illnesses as well as those injuries
which involved one or more of the following: Medical
treatment even if no time was lost from work, loss of
consciousness, restriction of work or motion, or trans­
fer to another job. (See chart 6.)
The extent of the differences between the estimates
is evident particularly in the estimate of fatalities for
1972. The BLS estimate of 5,500 fatalities excludes
fatalities for farms, mines, railroads, government, and
the self-employed regardless of industry. This figure
is not comparable with the 14,100 work-related
fatalities estimated by the NSC for all industries in 1972.
However, if the NSC estimates for excluded industries
and the self-employed were added to the BLS fatality
estimate, the BLS number would be raised to approxi­
mately 11,000 fatalities. (See chart 7.)
By division, the contract construction industry was
characterized by a relatively large proportion of injuries
and illnesses, particularly fatalities, compared to em­
ployment. With only 6 percent of the total employment
of the private nonfarm industries surveyed, this division
had about 27 percent of the fatalities and 10 percent
3

Hereafter, in this section, the incidence rates of occu­
pational illnesses represent the number of illnesses per 1,000
full-time workers, although tables 1 and 4 show the rates per
100 full-time workers. Incidence rates are changed to this
base because the rates generated per 200,000 hours of exposure
are, in general, quite small.

ness categories, pp. 118-119.

Council, 197 3), p. 23.

of the injuries and illnesses during the survey period.
(See chart 8.) The percent of recordable cases by the
three major industry groups in contract construction
approximated the employment levels— special trade
contractors, almost 50 percent; general building con­
tractors, almost 28 percent; and heavy construction
contractors, about 23 percent. (See table 6.)
Although constituting less than 33 percent of all
employment, manufacturing employees experienced
over 50 percent of all recordable occupational injuries
and illnesses in the private nonfarm sector during 1972.
Of the approximately 2.9 million recordable cases in
manufacturing, about 27 percent, or nearly 775,000,
involved lost workdays; about 1,400 resulted in fatal­
ities. Three industry groups accounted for over 50
percent of the cases and made up about 45 percent of
the employment in durable goods manufacturing—
fabricated metal products; machinery, except
electrical; and transportation equipment. In non­
durable goods manufacturing, four industry groups had
over two-thirds of the cases and over one-half the
employment— food and kindred products, textile mill
products, paper and allied products, and rubber and
plastics products. In fact, about one-third o f all
cases in nondurable goods occurred in food and kindred
products. Even in comparison to other industries within
manufacturing having similar employment levels, food
and kindred products showed unusually high estimates
of recordable cases.
Employers in transportation and public utilities, with
less than 7 percent of the private nonfarm work force,
experienced 405,000 recordable cases and 1,100 or 20
percent of all recordable fatalities. Of these 405,000
cases, the trucking and warehousing industry had 44
percent; the communications industry, with almost 30
percent of the employment, experienced about 9 per­
cent; and pipeline transportation had 1,100 injuries
and illnesses, the smallest number of any major in­
dustry group surveyed.
More than 1.1 million occupational injuries and
illnesses occurred in wholesale and retail trade, the
second largest number of cases for a division. Of these
cases, approximately 700 were fatal and over 370,000
resulted in lost workdays. Five of the nine industry
groups in the division had 87 percent of the cases—
wholesale trade, retail general merchandise, food
stores, automotive dealers and service stations, and
eating and drinking places. Wholesale trade, individ­
ually, was responsible for over 367,000 cases or
slightly over 32 percent of the total for the division.
The major industry group with the fewest cases was
apparel and accessory stores with 12,500.




Less than 2 percent of the total recordable cases
was estimated for the finance, insurance, and real
estate industry. The 87,000 cases included 100
fatalities and over 28,000 lost workday cases.
About 52 percent of the cases in finance, insurance,
and real estate occurred in real estate which has only
19 percent of the employment. All major industry
groups in this division had extremely few recordable
cases for the number of employees. This is particu­
larly evident for the security, commodity brokers,
and services group which had approximately 1,900
cases with an employment of almost 200,000.
Over 560,000 recordable injuries and illnesses
occurred in the services division; of these, around
500 were fatal and over 186,000 cases resulted in
lost workdays. Nearly 38 percent of the cases in
services were in the medical and other health services
group. Forestry, with only 2,000 injuries and illnesses,
had the fewest cases of any major industry group in
the division.
Ninety-six percent of all recordable cases were
injuries. Illnesses constituted the remaining 4 percent,
with occupational skin diseases or disorders making
up over 40 percent of the cases. (See chart 9.) Dust
diseases of the lungs, which showed the least number
of occurrences, averaged almost twice as many lost
workdays per lost workday case as the next highest
average for an occupational illness. An important
distinction between an occupational injury and illness
is that an injury occurs at a specific time and ordinarily
is discovered readily. On the other nana, an occupational
illness may develop slowly and be unknown to the em­
ployer and employee until symptoms arise or disability
occurs. In the meantime, the employee may work for
different employers and be exposed to different condi­
tions which cause the illness. Therefore, some illnesses
of occupational origin may not be recognized and may
not be reflected in the estimates.
Worktime lost due to occupational injuries
and illnesses

Disability involving worktime lost often imposes
serious personal and economic consequences for the
employee and immediate members of his family. Lost
workdays for the survey period totaled over 24.7
million days, or nearly 100,000 equivalent employeeyears of work. Lost worktime includes not only days
in which the employee was absent from his job because
of a work-related injury or illness but also days in
which an employee was restricted from performing all
the duties of his permanent job.
Manufacturing, and wholesale and retail trade con­
stituted almost two-thirds of the lost workdays among

industries surveyed. As a percent of total workdays in
the private nonfarm industries surveyed, the number of
days lost due to job-related injuries and illnesses
amounted to .17 percent. The following table compares
percent of days lost from job-related injuries and illnesses
and work days idle from work stoppages during 1972.

The average for 3-digit manufacturing industries ranged
from a high of 30 days in hydraulic cement manufacture
to a low of 9 days in paints and allied products. In 3digit nonmanufacturing activities, the average ranged
from 7 days for security brokers and dealers to 29 in
water transportation services.
Another measure of loss of time is an incidence rate
of lost workdays, which represents the number of lost

The two sets of data show that time lost from work
stoppages and from job-related injuries and illnesses is
similar in manufacturing and transportation and public
utilities, but time lost from stoppages is almost three
times that lost from injuries and illnesses in contract
construction. On the other hand, time lost from injuries
and illnesses is four times that lost from work stoppages
in wholesale and retail trade; finance, insurance, and
real estate; and services.
For all industries surveyed, the average number of
lost workdays per lost workday injury and illness
was 14. (See table 7.) The average number of lost work­
days by industry division fell into a very narrow range
from 12 in finance, insurance, and real estate to 16 in
transportation and public utilities. Text table 2 shows

workdays per 100 full-time workers.6 The incidence
rate of lost workdays ranged from 9.9 for finance,
insurance, and real estate to 88.5 for contract construc­
tion. Text table 3 shows that incidence rates of lost
workdays for 3-digit manufacturing and nonmanufac­
turing industries are distributed widely among intervals.

rate of lost workdays. The correlation coefficient be­
tween the two measures is +.843 and is significant at the
.05 level. Therefore, there is agreement between the
measures in identifying levels of worktime lost among
the industry divisions.

This measure appears to be an improvement over the
average lost workdays per lost workday case which are
clustered and tend to conceal wide variations among
industries. The level of incidence rates for lost workdays
by employment-size group nearly parallels the pattern of
incidence rates of recordable occupational injuries and
illnesses for virtually all industry divisions; the only
exception is finance, insurance, and real estate. The
correlation coefficients, which were significant at the
.05 level, ranged between +.714 for transportation and
public utilities and +.905 for contract construction and
manufacturing.

lost workday case with the rate of lost workdays among
the industry divisions, and the average deviation of the
two measures.7

In response to increased public interest in providing
medical services, and requests by OSHA and the National
Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, the Bureau
of Labor Statistics included a special section in the 1972
survey form on medical services provided by employers
in the private nonfarm sector. Data were collected con­
cerning arrangements with a physician or clinic, as well
as the availability of registered and licensed practical
nurses, industrial hygienists, and employees trained to
administer first aid.8
Results of the 1972 survey indicated that the
availability of nurses’ services did not appear to be
related to injury and illness experience. Contract con­
struction, which had the highest incidence rate of
injuries and illnesses during 1972, showed the lowest
level of nurses’ services available. Only 1.5 percent of
construction employees were provided nurses’ services,
compared to almost 6 percent in the industry division
with the lowest incidence of injuries and illnesses,
finance, insurance, and real estate. Employers in
manufacturing furnished nurses’ services to a much
larger portion of its employees— nearly 70 percent—
than employers in the other industry divisions.
Overall, nurses’ services were available to 21 percent
of the employees in the private nonfarm sector.

As the table shows, the average lost workdays per lost
workday case for the industries differed from the average
for the private nonfarm sector by 1.2 days compared to
24.9 days per 100 full-time workers for the incidence




6 The incidence rates for lost workdays appearing in this
table are the only ones published in this bulletin and were
calculated as: LWD/EH X 200,000, where,
LWD = number of lost workdays for injuries and/or illnesses
EH=total hours worked by all employees during; calendar 1972
200,000
= base for 100 full-time equivalent workers (wonting
40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).
This measure can be approximated for additional SIC
levels from the product of the incidence rate of lost workday
cases (appearing in table 1) and the average number of lost
workdays per lost workday case (appearing in table 8).
7 Average deviation or mean deviation measures the
dispersion of the average lost workdays per lost workday case
or the incidence rate of lost workdays for the industry
divisions from the average for the private nonfarm sector,
and is calculated as 2|x|/N , where
2 | x| = total deviation among the industry divisions
N = number of industry divisions
These data are not mutually exclusive since a single
reporting unit may provide more than one medical service.
The data are weighted estimates adjusted for nonresponse.
Data for medical and other health services (SIC 80) have
been deleted from the totals for the private nonfarm
sector and for services. Employment estimates for medical serv­
ices are based to benchmarked survey employment which may
differ from the employment levels in table 1.

For every licensed practical nurse on duty, four
registered nurses were serving private nonfarm sector
employees.
About 65 percent of the workers in the private non­
farm sector were employed in a workplace that pro­
vided the services of a physician or had an arrange­
ment with a clinic for the provision of medical care.9
In contract construction and manufacturing, employ­
ment levels were nearly 96 and 87 percent respectively.
The two industry divisions with the lowest incidence

of injuries and illnesses— finance, insurance, and real
estate, and services— provided the lowest levels or
slightly less than 50 percent of their employees with
physician and clinic services.
A relationship between the nature of the industry
and the type of arrangement with a physician or clinic
is also apparent. In contract construction, a division
characterized by relatively non-fixed work sites, over
90 percent of the employees for whom physicians’ and
clinical services were provided received those services
from physicians either on call or at a clinic. Manufac­
turing, in which fixed-plant sites are typical, provided
medical care by physicians employed at the plant on
either a full- or part-time basis to over 35 percent of its
employees. The industry division with the largest
proportion of full-time physicians’ services was trans­
portation and public utilities.
Employers in manufacturing, contract construction,
and transportation and public utilities divisions, ex­
periencing the largest incidence of occupational injuries
and illnesses during 1972, provided first-aid services to
a larger percent of their work force than the lower
incidence industry divisions.
Transportation and public utilities, a division with a
large portion of its work force involved in mobile
operations, had the largest percent (12.0) of employees
designated to provide emergency first-aid treatment.10

1 / Industry totals (Division and 2-digit SIC codes) include data for industries not shown separately.
Incidence rates are published for industries and employment size classes containing data submitted by a
minimum of 25 reporting units.

2/ Standard Industrial Classification Manual, 1967 Edition.
3j

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, wnere

N
* number of injuries and/or illnesses
EH
* total hours worked by all employees during calendar 1972
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 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 establishments have a rate
less than the first quartile rate and a fourth a rate more than the third quartile rate.
5/ Does not include railroad and mine activities except oil and gas extraction (SIC 13).
NOTE: n.e.c. = not elsewhere classified.

_3/ The incidence rates represent the number of illnesses per 100 full-time workers, and were calculated as:

N/EH X 200,000, where

N
= number of illnesses
EH
= total hours worked by all employees during calendar 1972

4 / 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."

Appendix A. Scope of the Survey and Technical Notes
Scope of survey

The survey relates to nonfarm employers in the
following private industries: Agricultural services,
forestry, and fisheries, SIC 07-09; oil and gas extrac­
tion, 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
were self-employed individuals; farm and railroad em­
ployers; employers covered by the Coal Mine Health
and Safety Act and the Metallic and Nonmetallic
Mine Safety Acts; and Federal, State, and local govern­
ment units. In a separate reporting system, agencies of
the Federal Government are filing reports comparable
to those of private industry with the Secretary of
Labor.
Questionnaires were mailed to over 214,000 units
in the national sample. A relatively small proportion of
the sample to which questionnaires were mailed were
not included in the final count for determining the
response rate because they were no longer in operation,
or were not within the scope of the survey, or were in­
cluded in the report for another location, or received
duplicate survey forms for the same location, or the
survey form was not mailable because of an inadequate
address. Because approximately 10,000 sample units
were in these categories, the total number in the
survey was reduced to nearly 204,000 (See charts 10
and 11.) Second mailings and telephone calls to non­
respondents resulted in replies from over 174,000
reporting units, for a 85.3 percent overall response
rate. The 1972 occupational injury and illness
national estimates included reports from around 62,000
manufacturing reporting units and from about 112,000
nonmanufacturing reporting units.
Survey questionnaire

The survey questionnaire requested information
concerning average employment during calendar year
1972; total employee-hours worked during 1972;
type of business activity; type of medical services
provided by the employer; injuries and seven categories




of occupational illnesses by fatalities, lost workday
cases, and nonfatal cases without lost workdays; and
the number of cases in which employees were trans­
ferred or terminated as a result of a job-related injury
or illness.
Sample design

The sample was selected to represent all nonfarm
and nongovernmental industries in all States and
territories, and to produce estimates of the number
of occurrences and incidence rates of occupational
injuries and illnesses for the nation as a whole.
Separate estimates by industry were required by the
Occupational Safety and Health program. It was also
known that incidence rates would vary between these
industries. These factors led to the stratification of the
universe into industries according to the 1967 edition
of the S tan dard In du strial Classification (SIC )
M anual published by the Office of Management and
Budget.
A sample size necessary to produce a certain level
of precision in the estimate of incidence rates was
then determined for each industry. Previous surveys
conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics have
given an indication of the variability of incidence rates
within certain groups of industries. Using these
measures of variability, the number of establishments
in the industry, and the employment in large establish­
ments, a sample size was calculated for each industry.
The number of employees in large establishments was
used as a control on the sample size. When industries
are dominated by a few large establishments, smaller
samples are necessary if the large establishments are
included in the sample with certainty. Industries with
higher expected incidence rates tended to be subject
to more variability and, therefore, were allotted a
proportionately larger sample than industries with
lower rates.
Within an industry it was known that the number
of injuries and illnesses an establishment experiences
will vary with the employment of the establishment.
Because of this, the universe of establishments within
an industry was stratified by employment and then an
optimum allocation was achieved by distributing the

sample to each size group proportionate to the total
employment in the size group. This procedure assumes
that the variance of the average number of injuries and
illnesses per establishment in a size group is propor­
tionate to the average establishment employment
size group. Sample sizes were then adjusted to produce
integral sampling ratios.
A further level of stratification was necessary before
the sample was selected. The occupational injuries and
illnesses survey is a Federal-State cooperative pro­
gram and data collection is accomplished by State
statistical grant agencies. The universe was then
stratified into States prior to sample selection. The
ratios determined for each industry-employmentsize group were then used to select a sample within
a State-industry-employment-size group sampling cell.
Estimating procedures

The injury and illness data for all reporting units
in each industry-employment-size group were expanded
by the inverse of the sampling ratio and benchmarked
to the appropriate employment level in each industry to
obtain the estimates. A benchmark factor was derived
for each estimating cell by dividing the benchmark
total employment by the weighted average employment
derived from the sample. The factor served to adjust
for additions to the universe and nonresponse within
each industry-employment-size cell.
Federal-State cooperation

Under grant arrangements with State agencies, the
respondent completes a single reporting form, which
is then used for national and State estimates. This
eliminates duplicate reporting by respondents and,
together with the use of identical techniques at the
national and State levels, insures maximum com­
parability of estimates.
Industrial classification

Reporting units are classified into industries on
the basis of their principal product or activity deter­
mined by information entered in section V (Nature
of Business) of the survey questionnaire. For a re­
porting unit making more than one product or
engaging in more than one activity, data for the
unit are included under the industry indicated by the
most important product or activity.
Rounding of published estimates

The original tabulations on which data of the
number of recordable fatalities and nonfatal
injuries and illnesses are based show all estimates




to the nearest whole unit. The estimates appearing
in tables 5, 6, and 7 are rounded to the nearest
thousand. The derived percents are computed after
the estimates on which the percents are based have
been rounded to the nearest thousand.
Reliability of estimates

Since the estimates are based on a sample, they
may differ from the figures that would have been
obtained if it were possible to take a complete census
of establishments using the same schedules and proce­
dures. As in any survey work, the results are subject
to errors of response and of reporting as well as
being subject to sampling variability.
The relative error is a measure of the sampling
variability; that is, the variations that occur by
chance because only a sample of the establishments
is in the survey. The chances are about 2 out of 3
that an estimate from the sample would differ from
a complete census by less than the relative error. The
chances are about 19 out of 20 that the difference
would be less than twice the relative error. The
relative standard errors shown in table A-l, page 83,
apply to the national estimate of fatalities appearing
in table 5. The relative standard errors shown in
table A-2, pages 84-95, apply to both the
national incidence rates appearing in table 1, table 2
(“ all sizes”), table 3 (mean incidence rate for “all
sizes”), and table 4 (“total occupational illnesses”);
and to the national estimates of occupational injuries
and illnesses appearing in table 5, table 6, and table 7
(“total”). These relative errors are approximations
to the relative errors of the estimates. Because of the
complex two-stage ratio estimation procedure, most
of the relative errors were computed using a sim­
plified 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 compared
to the simplified method.
As an example of the use of these relative errors,
general building construction (SIC 15) has an estimated
incidence rate for total recordable cases of 18.5 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 17.9 and 19.1. The
chances are 19 out of 20 that the rate produced from
a complete count would be between 17.3 and 19.7. For
the number of job-related injuries and illnesses re­
sulting in lost workdays, the published rate is 5.7 per
100 full-time workers with a 5 percent relative error.
The chances are 2 out of 3 that a census would show
a rate between 5.4 and 6.0, and 19 out of 20 that the
rate would be between 5.1 and 6.3

Similarly, the number of recordable occupational
injuries and illnesses estimated for SIC 15 was
157,800 with a relative error of 3 percent. The
chances are 2 out of 3 that a census would show a
number between approximately 153,100 and 162,500,
and 19 out of 20 that the number would be between
approximately 148,300 and 167,300.
Publication guidelines

The BLS tabulating system generates occupational
injury and illness estimates for over 770 SIC industry
levels. Estimates for several 2, 3, and 4-digit SIC levels,
however, were omitted from this bulletin if o n e of
the following 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 employment of one firm could not
constitute 50 percent of the employment for the
industry or two companies combined could not
equal 75 percent of the industry employment,
2. 1972 annual average employment for the
industry was less than 10,000;
3. Relative standard error for lost workday
cases at one standard deviation was more than 15
percent for the industry level;
4. Benchmark factor for the industry level was
less than .90 or greater than 1.33.
The 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 if the relative standard error for the
estimate was 60 percent or more.

Appendix D. State Data on Occupational
Injuries and Illnesses
Estimates for Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware,
District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Penn­
sylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming were
available for inclusion in this bulletin. Data on the fol­
lowing pages were extracted from reports of these States.
Following are the footnotes which apply to the State
tables:
1 Industry^ division totals include data for indus­
tries not shown separately.
2 S tandard In d u stria l C lassification M an u a l 1967
Edition.
3 Annual average employment are estimated from
the Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment and Earnings
Survey conducted in cooperation with various State
agencies.
4 The incidence rates represent the number of
injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers, and
were calculated as: N/EH X 200,000, where


http://fraser.stlouisfed.org/ 7 4 - 8
5 5 9 -4 0 2 O
Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis

N = number of injuries and/or illnesses
EH = total hours worked by all employees during
calendar 1972
200,000
= base for 100 full-time equivalent
workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).
5 Because of rounding, the sum of the rates for
lost workday cases and nonfatal cases without lost work­
days may not equal the total. In addition, the difference
between the components may not reflect the fatality
rate.
6 Does not include railroad and mine activities,
other than oil and gas extraction (SIC 13) if such
activities are present.
NOTES: Dashes indicate no data reported or data
that do not meet publication guidelines.
n.a. = employment estimates are not available.
n.e.c. = not elsewhere classified.

Appendix E. 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

Number of injuries and illnesses experienced by 100 full-time workers.
The rate is calculated as:
—
—x 200,000, where
EH
N= number of occupational injuries and/or illnesses
EH = total hours worked by all employees during reference year
200,000 = base for 100 full-time equivalent workers (working 40 hours
per week, 50 weeks per year).

Lost workdays

The number of days the employee would have worked but could not
because of occupational injury or illness. The number of lost workdays
does not include the day of injury. The number of days includes all
days (consecutive or not) on which, because of the injury or illness:
(1) the employee would have worked but could not, or (2) the employee
was assigned to a temporary job, or (3) the employee worked at a per­
manent job less than full time, or (4) the employee worked at a perma­
nently 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 injury, caused by exposure to environmental factors
associated with employment. It includes 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 bums or inflammations; etc.




(22) Dust diseases of the lung (pneumoconioses)
Examples: Silicosis, asbestosis, coal worker’s pneumo­
coniosis, byssinosis, and other pneumoconioses.
(23) Respiratory conditions due to toxic agents
Examples: Pneumonitis, pharyngitis, rhinitis or acute conges­
tion 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; poi­
soning 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 of exposure to low temperatures; caisson disease;
effects of 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, teno­
synovitis, and bursitis; Raynaud’s phenomena; and other
conditions due to repeated motion, vibration, 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 injuries
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,
Executive Office of the President/Office of Management and Budget 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 as 2-digit, 3-digit,
or 4-digit industries, according to the degree of 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.

Statistical grant agencies

Those agencies designated by the Governor to participate in the BLS
Federal-State statistical program. The States and jurisdictions
share half the costs with the Federal government in collecting,
processing, and analyzing a body of data relevant to administering
Federal and State occupational safety and health legislation.
