Occupational Injuries And Illnesses: A Pilot Study Of Job-Transfer Or Work-Restriction Cases, 2012

Source: ureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Report 1049, April 2014

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) conducted a pilot study to learn more about the case circumstances and worker characteristics for occupational injury and illness cases that resulted in days of job transfer or work restriction for workers in six private industry subsectors in 2012. This is the second year for which these data are available. Rather than design and conduct an entirely separate survey, BLS integrated the pilot study with the existing BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII), an annual survey of over 250,000 establishments.
