1 OSHA Benchmarking Report Provided by: Diversified Insurance Service 349 Rice Street, PO Box 258 Elmore, OH Tel: (800)

2 Introduction Whether it's on Wall Street or on Main Street, in the boardroom of a Fortune 500 company or the front office of your favorite sports team, "big data" is changing the way business decisions are made. Every day, and in ever-increasing numbers, organizations are using data analytics to streamline operations, increase efficiency and gain a strategic edge. The OSHA Benchmarking Report brings a similar analytical approach to the field of workplace safety and can help you optimize your training efforts through an evidence-based, analytical approach to workplace safety. By analyzing injury and accident data from nearly a quarter of a million establishments located throughout the United States, the OSHA Benchmarking Report is able to: Calculate your organization's incidence rates, including your total recordable case rate and your DART rate Benchmark these incidence rates against other establishments operating in the same industry sector, on both state and national levels Identify the most significant safety and compliance risks based on your industry designation (NAICS code) Identify the most common injury and illness risks based on specific job title/occupation On the final page of this report, you will find a short list of training resources recommended for your organization based on the specific risk factors identified in this report. These training resources come from our robust library of compliance and safety training solutions. If you would like us to provide you with a copy of any of these items or would like to discuss the results of your report, please let us know: Diversified Insurance Service 349 Rice Street, PO Box 258 Elmore, OH Tel: (800) Zywave, Inc.

4 OSHA Recordkeeping Overview NAICS Code: Industry Sector: Masonry contractors Incidence Rates: TRC Rate: 23.8 DART Rate: 71.4 DAFWII Rate: 71.4 TR Rate: 0.0 In the gray box above, we have calculated four different types of incidence rates for your organization: TRC Rate, DART Rate, DAFWII Rate and TR Rate. The term "incidence rate" can be a source of considerable confusion because it can describe different things depending on the context in which it is used. Incidence rate is often used to refer specifically to an organization's total recordable case rate, but strictly speaking, all four of the rates listed above are different types of incidence rates. To avoid confusion, this report will use the acronym TRC when refering to the total recordable case rate. The list below provides brief definitions of the various types of incidence rates referenced in the OSHA Benchmarking Report: DEFINITIONS TRC Rate: Total Recordable Case Rate. The TRC Rate is the number of recordable injuries and illnesses occurring per 100 equivalent full-time workers. DART Rate: Days Away, Restricted work activity, and/or job Transfer Rate. The DART Rate is the number of recordable cases involving days away from work, restricted work activity or transfers to another job per 100 equivalent full-time workers DAFWII Rate: Days Away From Work Injury and Illness Rate. The DAFWII Rate is the number of recordable cases involving days away from work per 100 full-time equivalent employees TR Rate: job Transfer and/or Restricted work activity Rate. The TR Rate is the number of recordable cases involving restricted work activity or transfers to another job per 100 full-time equivalent employees

5 OSHA Benchmarking - U.S. Industry Average Every year OSHA collects work-related injury and illness data from employers within specific industry and employment size specifications. The data is used by OSHA to calculate establishment-specific injury and illness incidence rates. Comparing the incidence rates at your establishment with other businesses operating in the same industry sector can help you identify problem areas in the workplace and track pr ogress made in preventing work-related injuries and illnesses. Injury Rate - Industry Average (U.S.) vs. NAICS TRC Rate DAFWII Rate TR Rate DART Rate NAICS TRC Rate DAFWII Rate TR Rate DART Rate DEFINITIONS TRC Rate: Total Recordable Case Rate. The TRC Rate is the number of recordable injuries and illnesses occurring per 100 equivalent full-time workers. DART Rate: Days Away, Restricted work activity, and/or job Transfer Rate. The DART Rate is the number of recordable cases involving days away from work, restricted work activity or transfers to another job per 100 equivalent full-time workers DAFWII Rate: Days Away From Work Injury and Illness Rate. The DAFWII Rate is the number of recordable cases involving days away from work per 100 full-time equivalent employees TR Rate: job Transfer and/or Restricted work activity Rate. The TR Rate is the number of recordable cases involving restricted work ac tivity or transfers to another job per 100 full-time equivalent employees

6 OSHA Benchmarking - State-specific Industry Rates Incidence rates can be used to show the relative level of injuries and illnesses among different industries, firms, or operat ions within a single firm. Because a common base and a specific period of time are involved, these rates can help identify both problem areas and progress made in preventing work-related injuries and illnesses. On the previous page, we compared your incidence rates against national industry averages. On this page, we look at how your TRC rate, DAFWII rate and DART rate compare with state averages for your industry sector. Injury Rate - Industry Average (Ohio) vs. NAICS N/A - Ohio TRC Rate N/A 23.8 DAFWII Rate N/A 71.4 DART Rate N/A 71.4 NAICS N/A - Ohio TRC Rate DAFWII Rate DART Rate This information comes from the most recent (2012) Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII). The SOII is an annua l survey of roughly 250,000 private employers, state governments and local governments. The number of states for which industry-specific data is available varies from year to year because (A) not all states have survey sample sizes sufficient to generate reliable state-specific estimates of workplace injuries and illnesses and (B) not all states choose to release their estimates. The following states did not release estimates as part of the most recent SOII: Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Rhode Island and South Dakota. For the states that do publish estimates, the sample sizes often are not sufficient to generate estimates at the same level o f granular industry detail as for national estimates. Because of this, the industry sector displayed above may be slightly broader in scope than the industry sector(s) referenced elsewhere in this report.

7 Injury Data Overview What are the top safety risks facing your industry? What type of injuries occur most often? How should you decide where to focus your time and resources when it comes to safety training? The next section of the OSHA Benchmarking Report will help you answer these and other related questions. You can use the industry -specific and occupation-specific injury data to proactively attack your biggest sources of risk through targeted training efforts. Where does this injury data come from? This industry-specific and occupation-specific information was compiled using data from the 2012 Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII). The SOII is an annual survey of roughly 250,000 private employers, state governments and local governments. Establishments selected for the SOII are required by law to maintain a detailed log of worker injuries throughout the year and submit the completed l og to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The 2013 SOII is scheduled for release in November 2014, at which time the results will b e incorporated into this report.

8 Industry-specific Injury & Illness Data: Nature of Injury Nature of injury or illness refers the principal physical characteristic of a disabling condition, such as sprain/strain, cut/laceration, or carpal tunnel syndrome.
