|Frequency of injury by time of day injury occurred|
Daily patterns of injury.
We looked at the incidence of injury by the time of day that
it occurred for the incidences which were reported. There appear
to be two spikes during the day when injuries are most likely to
occur, one in the morning around 8 or 9 AM and again in the
afternoon around 2 or 3 PM. This corresponds with known daily
performance cycles of humans (Hedge, 1997).
