Footnotes:
 

1 Incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per Published by the Connecticut Department of Labor, Project Management Office0 full-time workers and were calculated as:

  • (N/EH) x 200,000 where N = number of injuries and illnesses

  • EH = total hours worked by all employees during the calendar year.

  • 200,000 = base for equivalent full-time workers (working 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year).

2 Total lost workday cases involve days away from work, or days of restricted work activity, or both.

3 Days-away-from-work cases include those which result in days away from work with or without restricted work activity.

4 Excludes farms with fewer than 11 employees.

5 Data conforming to OSHA definitions for mining operators in coal, metal, and nonmetal mining and for employees in railroad transportation are provided to BLS by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor; and the Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation. Independent mining contractors are excluded from the coal, metal, and nonmetal mining industries.

6 In 1996, air courier operations previously classified in Industry Groups 421, 422, 423, 452, 473, and 478 were reclassified to Industry Group 451. As a result, the 1996, 1997, and 1998 estimates for these SIC's and major Industry Groups 42, 45, and 47 are not comparable to those for prior years. In addition, the 1996 and 1997 estimates for transportation and public utilities may have more variability than those for prior years.

7 Incidence rate is less than 0.05.

NOTE: Because of rounding, components may not add to totals.
