1 OPM provided OSHA with the most recent available data on the average number of employees for each department and independent agency for the period from October 2012 through September 2013.

2 The Total and Lost Time case numbers are derived from claims submitted to OWCP with "case create" dates of October 1, 2013 through December 30, 2013 (less denied cases with an adjudication status of D2, D3, D4, or D5).

3 The Total Case Rate (TCR) and Lost Time Case Rate (LTCR) are calculated separately by dividing the number of total/lost time cases by the number of employees. The resulting number is then multiplied by 100, for a rate per 100 employees. The "projected" end-of-year rates are calculated by multiplying the Quarter total and lost time case rates by 4 for the annualized rates.

4 Fatality numbers are derived from claims submitted to OWCP with "date of death" dates from October 1, 2013 through December 30, 2013 (less denied cases with an adjudication status of D2 D3, D4, or D5).

5 Employment numbers were provided by the agency for the U.S. Capitol Police and Department of Labor.

6 The employment totals for the Farm Service Agency, Marine Corps, Defense Commissary Agency, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Interior and Veterans Affairs were obtained from OPM's Fedscope website for the period September 2013.
