Abstract

[Excerpt] In 2011, the majority of the musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) that required days away from work, job transfer or restriction (DART) in food manufacturing; building material and garden equipment and supplies dealers; warehousing and storage; and nursing and residential care facilities resulted in days of job transfer or restriction (DJTR) without any days away from work. (See chart A.) These data are from a special pilot study issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) on the details of case circumstances and worker characteristics for occupational injury and illness cases that resulted in days of job transfer or restriction. These data are available for the first time for 2011 for six private industry sub-sectors (North American Industry Classification System, 2007) selected for this BLS pilot study:

- Specialty trade contractors (NAICS 238)

- Air transportation (NAICS 481)

- Food manufacturing (NAICS 311)

- Warehousing and storage (NAICS 493)

- Building material and garden equipment and supplies dealer (NAICS 444)

- Nursing and residential care facilities (NAICS 623)
