Y-12 National Security Complex
2009 Illness and Injury Surveillance Report
At A Glance
The Y-12 work force consisted of 4,891 employees in 2009. The size of the
work force has been about 5,000 since 2003. Women made up about 27
percent of all workers, which is consistent with other DOE sites participating
in the Illness and Injury Surveillance Program (IISP).
There were 892 absences reported in 2009, a decrease of 86 absences from
2008. The decrease in absences was not due to any particular occupational
group or diagnosis category. The site reports absences of 3 days or greater in
length which are included in this report.
Among both men and women, disorders of the musculoskeletal system and
respiratory conditions were the 2 most common diagnosis categories reported
in 2009 and have been among the 3 most common categories since 2003.
These 2 diagnostic categories are typically among the 3 most commonly
reported at DOE sites participating in the IISP.
Women lost 12,528 calendar days due to injury and illness with an average
length of absence of 37 days. Men lost 21,537 calendar days due to injury
and illness with an average absence lasting 39 days. The average length of
absences has remained stable since 2003 for both men and women.
Age-adjusted rates for all illness and injury diagnoses combined are the
lowest they have been for both men and women since 2003. The reduction in
the rates does not appear to be the result of a reduction in any particular
Line Operators had the highest absence rate among men and women in
2009. Administrative Support workers had the lowest absence rate for men
and Security and Fire workers had the lowest absence rate for women.
