Private industry employers reported nearly 48,000 fewer nonfatal injury and illness cases in 2015 compared to a year earlier, according to estimates from the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII ) . Because of this decline, combined with an increase in reported hours worked, the total recordable cases (TRC) incidence rate fell 0.2 cases per 100 full – time workers.

The fall in the TRC rate was driven by a decline in the rate of cases involving days a way from work (DAFW) and other recordable cases (ORC) — each falling 0.1 cases — as the rate for cases of job transfer or restriction only (DJTR) has remained at 0.7 cases since 2011.
