BLS releases data on injury and illness job transfer/restriction pilot study
Posted April 15, 2016
Data from the 2014 pilot study on cases of injury and illnesses resulting in days of job-transfer or restriction (DJTR) have been posted to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) website. The material includes background information, data tables, and charts and links to prior year’s data.
The regular Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) includes only data on the case circumstances and worker characteristics on days-away-from-work cases; this study is an expansion of the SOII to collect and report the same detail for days-of-job-transfer-or-restriction cases.
For 2014, the case circumstance and worker characteristic data are available for the following six industry subsectors:
- Beverage and tobacco product manufacturing (NAICS 312)
- General merchandise stores (NAICS 452)
- Couriers and messengers (NAICS 492)
- Waste management and remediation services (NAICS 562)
- Hospitals (NAICS 622)
- Accommodation (NAICS 721
