Lost time injuries
Outlines a proposal for Injury Severity Index using a Standard Injury, (fractured femur), against which all other injuries will be measured.

The Injury Severity Rate will simply be the sum of the scores for the given time period. It can be converted into and Incidence Rate or a Frequency Rate.
