from National Center for Biotechnology Information
Work-related injury and fatality rates among U.S. paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) are higher than the national average for all occupations. Data collected by the Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics were reviewed to identify injuries and fatalities among EMTs and paramedics from 2003 through 2007. The characteristics of fatal injuries are described and the rates and relative risks of the non-fatal injuries were calculated and compared to the national average.
