According to the California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR), the Golden State’s incidence rate was basically unchanged at 3.8 cases per 100 full-time workers. The figure—the lowest in a decade—reflects 2015 incidents. The state says there were approximately 470,600 nonfatal, reportable injuries and illnesses last year, with 77 percent in private industry and 23 percent in state and local government workplaces. The statewide all-industry rate of lost time, or DART cases, remained steady at 2.2 cases.

By industry category in 2015, DIR reported an improvement in construction employment with a decline from 1.8 to 1.4 cases. There was more good news in the administrative support and waste management sector, with a decrease of 36 percent. Injury and illness rate increases were noted in the trade, transportation, and utilities sector, and in the agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting category.

State labor officials say this preliminary data, combined with more refined data expected later this month, will help refine and strengthen workplace safety rules, training materials, and outreach and education efforts.
