Question
We are establishing a safety measurement program and are interested in determining what our TRIR would be for SIC: 3646 NAISC: 335122.  Can you please assist us with this determination.  As we read the 2010 chart, we see 3.4 as the total recordable cases (TRIR).  Would this be correct?  I greatly appreciate any assistance you are able to provide.

Answer: Yes you are correct. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) the latest figures which are currently 2010 for the classification you list is 3.4 Recordable Incidents per 100 employees. My reference to the list is --
