BLS Publishes Pilot Test – Full Of Good Info
The BLS publishes pilot test on Modified and restricted duty that is full of great charts and data.
The BLS (Bureau of Labor and Statistics) has more labor statistics than any site on the web. If you are a writer or presenter, the BLS is the go-to place for any type of out-of-work statistics. The list of documents available is enormous.In April 2014, the BLS published a study known as Occupational Injuries and Illnesses: A pilot study of job-transfer or work-restriction cases, 2012.
The summary page at the bottom the study shows one very interesting statistic.On page 35, the study has a chart which indicates that Food Manufacturers and Warehousing/Storage are the best in the study at returning injured workers to alternative jobs or modified duty. The ability to return an injured worker to modified duty or an alternative job could also result from the type of work involved with these specific employers.
The pilot study did not analyze all employers. The BLS may do a full analysis in the future. I will update this article when and if the BLS updates their study.
