In order to better represent the SOII
architecture using petri net, Object Oriented Methodology (OOM) is used.
For more information on both the CFOI and SOII
programs, see "Occupational safety and health statistics," BLS Handbook of Methods, chapter 9 (U.
Examining potential racial disparities in rates of occupational injuries and illnesses through existing occupational health surveillance systems is challenging because the SOII
does not require employers to record the race of injured workers and WC databases generally exclude race and ethnicity (Bonauto et al.
For each patient, the additional ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes generated were added to the ICD-9-CM codes obtained from the medical records department, and the resultant set of codes was processed with the APR-DRG Grouper to create the concurrent SOII
is an evolution in the approach to data and application integration based on the use of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) as a guiding principle.
Also in 1992, BLS expanded the SOII
to include "case and demographic" details.
Because the SOII
and CFOI do not have the employment information, one important issue in building an uninterrupted time series for the subsequent analysis is to estimate the denominator (i.
Among the areas of exploration are (1) comparisons of SOII
data with other sources of worker injury data, (2) interviews with employers to gain a greater understanding of obstacles to complete coding as well as training needs, (3) computer-assisted coding schemes designed to build consistency and identify outliers for further examination, and (4) potential recontact of employers to identify the frequency and nature of changes to work injury records that may be made after initial BLS data collection.
The change in industry classification that was introduced into the SOII
in 2003 makes it difficult to compare the earlier shares of restricted-work cases with more recent ones.
publishes four case characteristics to describe each incident that leads to an injury or illness resulting in at least 1 day away from work; in addition to these four characteristics, the CFOI publishes an additional characteristic (secondary source) to describe a fatal workplace injury.
The entries in this section emphasize the importance of the Secondary Source in describing the incident, so that the SOII
is now required to routinely report both the Source and the Secondary Source, rather than just the former.
As a result of OSHA's actions, the SOII
was able to capture hearing loss cases and began producing counts and rates by industry in 2004, releasing survey year 2004 data in November 2005.
