Incidence Rate of Occupational Injuries, Fatalities per 100,000 Employed Persons

Table ID: 3K3E9010

Indicator Incidence rate of occupational injuries, fatalities per 100,000 employed persons
Definition All establishments employing 20 or more workers.  Before 2012, non-agricultural only.
Indicator defined as: Total cases of occupational injuries resulting to deaths whether death occurs immediately after the accident or within the same year as the accident, per 100,000 employed persons.
Occupational injury – an injury which results from a work-related event or a single instantaneous exposure in the work environment (occupational accident). Where more than one person is injured in a single accident, each case of occupational injury should be counted separately. If one person is injured in more than one occupational accident during the reference period, each case of injury to that person should be counted separately. Recurrent absences due to an injury resulting from a single occupational accident should be treated as the continuation of the same case of occupational injury not as a new case.
Fatal case – case where a person is fatally injured as a result of occupational accident whether death occurs immediately after the accident or within the same reference year as the accident.
Method of Computation ((Occupational injuries - fatal with workdays lost/1000)/Total eployed)*100000

The 2000 OIS was conducted as an independent survey.

The use of incidence rate over frequency rate (which is calculated per million hours worked) is used as it is easier to interpret.
