Most spinal cord injuries (SCIs) are the result of motor vehicle accidents (MVAs).
There are no published reports specifically addressing SCIs that occur in the workplace.
We report a cohort survey study examining the frequency and etiology of SCI in the workplace.
Through a cooperative program, an evaluation of all SCIs seen in Colorado during a 51/2-year period (January 1, 1986 through June 6, 1991) is presented.
We report a detailed analysis of specific data of all SCIs occurring in the workplace.
There were a total of 566, with 74 (13.1%) due to injuries that occurred during the course of employment.
