24.30.2551 AVERAGE LOST WORKDAY INCIDENCE RATE FOR OCCUPATIONAL INJURIES AND ILLNESSES
(1) For the purpose of determining when a waiver of the safety committee requirement is appropriate, the department annually establishes the average lost workday incidence rate for occupational injuries and illnesses for Montana entities. The average incidence rate is applicable to entities within the same 2-digit standard industrial classification (SIC) code.
(2) The average incidence rate is based upon Montana data compiled and published by the U.S. department of labor, bureau of labor statistics. If sufficient credible Montana data is lacking for a given 2-digit SIC code, the department will use national data.
(3) A copy of the current list of average incidence rates is available by writing the department's Safety, Bureau, P.O. Box 1728, Helena, Montana, 59624-1728, or telephoning (406) 444-6401.
