Injury Frequency Rate

Hello,
Is there any risk factor which is included in IFR calculation depends of type of industry? I am working in metal industry and risk of injury is much more higher than for example in food industry. If two companies, one from metal industry, other from food industry, have the same number of injuries per year and the same number of worked hours, is thare a different level of IFR depends of industry type or for each type of industry IFR is the same?

I think it would be obvious that the "injury frequency rate" is dependent upon the industry! But what "IFR calculation" are you talking about?

"If two companies, one from metal industry, other from food industry, have the same number of injuries per year and the same number of worked hours" then clearly they have the same IFR if you mean just "number of injuries per hour worked". But it is also clear that one of those two companies, if not both, are different from the average for their industry.
