Federal Employees News Digest : Oct 7, 2013
eficiaries in 2010—43 percent—were employed by USPS at the time of their injury, accounting for more than 130,000 employees in all. More recently, in fiscal 2012, USPS reported 32,213 injuries among its employees. Of those injuries, GAO said, 36 percent were sustained by carriers delivering mail on three different types of routes specified on USPS's accident report form---foot routes, rural routes, and "park-and-loop" routes. The most frequently reported cause of injury for foot routes was dog bites, while the most frequently reported cause of injury for rural delivery routes was vehicular collisions, according to the report. USPS has touted its commitment to reducing injuries, GAO said, but the study pointed out that while USPS said in its fiscal 2011 annual report that occupa- tional-related injury rates were reduced by almost 50 percent over the previous 10 years, another indicator showed little change. GAO said that USPS's reported illness and injury rate, which is the indi- cator of an agency's safety record as reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, "has changed only slightly over the last few years." (See chart.) GAO said that according to USPS data, among all the injuries that occurred from 2009 through 2012 on delivery routes, most were attributable to either falls or dog bites. Falls were among the most common reasons behind injuries that resulted in either restricted work activity or days away from work. On the other hand, repetitive motions were the most com- mon cause of long-term occupational illnesses regardless of severity or route type.
