The final report, which describes a field test of an injury reporting and analysis system for the solid waste management industry, gives a comprehensive account of the development of the Injury Reporting and Information System (IRIS). The need for this system arises from the extremely high incidence and severity rates for injuries associated with this industry, and from the fact that no data are presently available which can be used to set priorities for injury reduction programs or to monitor their success. The purpose of the field test was to design a workable injury reporting and analysis system. Data supplied by eleven public and four private solid waste agencies to the Central Data Office was collated and returned in a Quarterly Safety Management Report to each participant identified by code. This type of comparison serves two purposes. The first is to identify the agencies with the lowest incidence rates so they may be studied to gain insight into the solutions of problems for others; the second is to monitor the success of implemented countermeasures.
