    An estimated 15.9 million people worked in the Manufacturing Sector in 2008, which accounted for approximately 10.9% of the employed U.S. workforce. In 2008, 411 manufacturing sector workers died from occupational injuries. The leading causes of death were contact with objects and equipment (116), transportation incidents (104), and falls (58). The Sector reported 689,700 non-fatal occupational injuries and illnesses with more than half requiring days away from work, job transfer, or restriction. The leading causes of days away from work cases were: contact with objects or equipment (60,430), overexertion and repetitive motion (47,190), and falls (24,260). These data substantiate that Strategic Goal of the National Manufacturing Agenda focuses on one of the three leading sources of occupational injuries and fatalities - contact with objects and equipment.
