Communities that are under government jurisdiction had an even higher rate, at 12 incidents per 100 workers. (https://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/osh.pdf)

*Stylists have reported waiting 5 to 20 minutes for transfer assistance in the salon, which totaled up to 4.5 hours or more per week with 30 visits.
The Adjust-a-Sink nearly eliminated these wait times, allowing more appointments per day. (https://www.osha.gov/dsg/hospitals/documents/1.1_Data_highlights_508.pdf)
