Description

For sample adults ages 18 and older who were employed in the past two weeks (one week in 1998) by a private company or by federal, state, or local government, and who worked at a location or facility that had at least 50 employees, WHIINJURY reports whether any educational materials or programs were made available to employees at the person's workplace about job hazards and injury prevention. To see whether persons participated in this educational programming, refer to WHIINJURYUS.

WHIINJURY was first introduced in 1994 as part of a series of questions on health information at work. For a complete list of included workplace health education topics, see WHIACCID. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function or drop-down menus.
