The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has recently developed a suggested list of the 10 leading work-related diseases and injuries (Table 1). Three criteria were used to develop the list: the disease's or injury's frequency of occurrence, its severity in the individual case, and its amenability to prevention.
