Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...between a serious and a slight injury is on a 14-day basis and is in accordance with that used by the majority of the compensation commissions, thus making a serious injury more or less comparable with an injury for which compensation is payable. The bureau's report for 1913 and 1914 defined a serious injury as one causing disability'of 20 days or more. Although this definition was used by the bureau for a number of years in connection with its report on metal-mine and quarry accidents, yet in order to be more nearly uniform with the various compensation laws, it was decided that a serious injury should be defined as one that caused a disability of more than two weeks. It, therefore, breaks on a multiple of 7 days so that States or operating companies that keep their records on a weekly basis will not find inconvenient the rendering of a report on the 14-day basis. This class includes such injuries as broken arms and legs, loss of eye, and severe cuts and bruises. SLIGHT INJURY. A slight injury is considered as one that involves a loss of time of more than 1 day but less than 15 days. Under this class may be placed such injuries as cuts, sprains, mashed fingers, bruises, dirt in eye, and slight burns. Of course, any slight injury may become infected and thus result in a serious injury as defined above. CLASSIFICATION OF INJURIES FOB 1016. Many of the States now have compensation laws, and in order to conform with their classifications the bureau's classification of serious and slight injuries for 1916 will be on a 14-day (2-week) basis. The classification of injuries will include three types, as follows: 1. Fatal. 2. Serious (time lost, more than 14 days): (a) Permanent disability. Total. Partial. (6) Others. 3. Slight (time lost, 1 to more
