ANALYSIS OF ACCIDENTS INVOLVING FIELD MAINTENANCE EMPLOYEES OF THE IOWA STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSION

A SUMMARY IS PRESENTED OF PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENTS TO FIELD MAINTENANCE EMPLOYEES OF THE IOWA STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSION, FROM JULY THROUGH DECEMBER 1959. EQUIPMENT OPERATORS REPORTED A LARGER NUMBER OF INJURIES THAN DID ANY OTHER CLASS OF PERSONNEL, AND THESE OCCURRED MORE FREQUENTLY WHILE OPERATING EQUIPMENT THAN WHILE DOING OTHER WORK. MECHANICS INCURRED THE HIGHEST FREQUENCY OF ACCIDENTS PER EMPLOYEE. ALTHOUGH THE PART OF THE BODY MOST FREQUENTLY INJURED WAS THE HAND AND FINGERS, BACK INJURIES CAUSED THE MOST LOST TIME DURING NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER. TIME LOST BECAUSE OF INJURIES IS PRESENTED IN A TABLE.
