Question: How do I find the Average TRIR for SIC 1389 (Oil and Gas Extraction (NEC)? I want to compare my TRIR with that of others in my industry.
Answer: Greg, the first step is to convert your SIC code to the newer NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) which is used by the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) in reporting industry incident rates. This can be accomplished by going to:
and following the steps for conversion. There are several possible NAICS conversions and you will need to select the one which best describes you situation. (Most likely none will fit exactly and you will need to select the one closest to your situation.)
Once you have selected the most suitable NAICS classification you can go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics site at:
and then scroll down to the proper row in the table. Additional data may be found at the BLS site:
Although this last reference contains a tremendous amount of data and it is easy to get lost in all the numbers ..... I have done so on several occasions.
I hope this will provide the resources needed to arrive at your answer. If I can be of any further assistance, please feel free to ask additional questions.
