The Primary Source1 of injury or illness identifies the object, bodily motion, or exposure which directly produced or inflicted the previously identified injury or illness.
The Secondary Source2 of injury or illness identifies the object, substance, or person that generated the source of injury or illness or that contributed to the event or exposure.
The Farm and Agricultural Injury Classification (FAIC) Code is a classification scheme used in some states. The code provides a mechanism to separate out incidents not directly related to the work of production agriculture. The FAIC was introduced in Pennsylvania in 1992 and revised in 2000; therefore 2016 totals can only be compared with 2001-2015 totals. Fatality reports since 2000 have been used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System (OIICS) to characterize primary and secondary sources of injury. BLS revised the structure of categories in 2012. Most changes are subtle, but use caution when comparing the 2016 report to previous reports.
