Rates of Serious Workplace Injuries Vary Widely by State, Allsup Reports in New Nationwide Study
Date:7/11/2013

Belleville, Ill. (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

Rates of serious workplace injury and illness vary significantly between states—even for workers in the same industries—according to a new report released by Allsup, a nationwide provider of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) representation. The report is based on data obtained from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

The new report, “Allsup Study of Workplace Injuries,” spotlights the most work-threatening industries by location, based on the rates of injuries that are serious enough to involve “days of job transfer or restriction.” The full report is available on Allsup’s website: WorkInjury.Allsup.com.

“At a time when nearly 9 million workers are receiving Social Security Disability Insurance benefits—many of whom were originally injured on the job—this report should draw attention to the widely varying rates of worker injury across states,” said Mike Stein, Allsup assistant vice president of claims. “In this new study, Allsup drills deeper into the data to show not just which industries are responsible for the most serious injuries, but where.”

States with Highest Rate of Workplace Injuries
The report opens with a chart and map that show the differing injury rates between states. The states with the highest rate of workplace injuries that involve days of job transfer or restriction are:

1. Maine – 1.4 injury or illness cases with job transfer or restriction per 100 workers
2. Indiana – 1.1
3. California – 1.0
4. Connecticut, Kansas, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wisconsin – 0.9
5. Alabama, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Oregon, Pennsy
