U.S. Department of Labor
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Injuries and Illnesses News Release for 2011 there were nearly 3.0 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses were reported by private industry employers in 2011, resulting in an incidence rate of 3.5 cases per 100 equivalent full-time workers.
More than one-half of the nearly 3.0 million private industry injury and illness cases reported nationally in 2011 were of a more serious nature that involved days away from work, job transfer, or restriction. These cases occurred at a rate of 1.8 cases per 100 full-time workers. The rate for cases involving days away from work in 2011 was 1.1 cases per 100. With these sobering statistics, the need and urgency for employers to be prepared becomes apparent.
Every industry, sector and organization size is affected. The report indicates that the injury and illness incidence rate remained highest in 2011 among mid-size private industry establishments (those employing between 50 and 249 workers) compared to establishments of other sizes. More than 2.8 million (94.8 percent) of the nearly 3.0 million nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses in 2011 were injuries. Among injuries, 2.1 million (75.2 percent) occurred in service-providing industries, which employed 82.5 percent of the private industry workforce covered by this survey. The remaining 0.7 million injuries (24.8 percent) occurred in goods-producing industries, which accounted for 17.5 percent of private industry employment covered by this survey in 2011.
