The BLS found that injuries and illnesses in five occupations accounted for about 20 percent of the days-away cases. They are laborers, nursing aides/orderlies/attendants, janitors and cleaners, heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers, and police officers/sheriff’s patrol officers.

In the private sector, injuries and illnesses among workers with 1 to 5 years of service accounted for about a third of the cases.
