CDC Mining Injuries, Illnesses, and Hazardous

Traditional causes of injuries and fatalities and the potential for underground disasters still exist in U.S. mines today. For example, mine roof collapses account for a large portion of underground deaths and injuries. Respirable coal mine dust, which can lead to 'black lung' disease, and harmful noise levels remain persistent health concerns.

CDC NIOSH Program Portfolio : Mining : Risks

During 2000-2004, the nonfatal lost-time injury rate for mining is 4.5 injuries per 100 FTE in coal mining and 2.9 in metal/nonmetal mining. This contrasts to a rate of 2.6 (2003 rate) for all industry. The higher rate in coal mining leads us to place greater emphasis on research for injury reduction in this Mining sector.
