There are few studies that examine the overall morbidity of women in industrial settings.
Results from a surveillance program of 21,294 female employees of the US Department of Energy for a 12-month period are presented.
Illness/absence data of 5 or more workdays were collected from an epidemiologic surveillance program at eight sites.
Approximately 1 1% of the workforce reported an absence of 5 or more workdays in the 12-month period.
The five most common disease categories accounted for 70% of all illness or injury absences among female workers.
These were respiratory illnesses (22.1%), musculoskeletal disorders (13.2%), injury and poisonings (13.0%), genitourinary illnesses (9.8%), and digestive illnesses (8.8%). Sprains and strains were most frequently attributable to workplace conditions.
