Abstract

Safety in coal mining is the subject of policy debate and public scrutiny because of the personal suffering and hardship that coal mine injuries and fatalities are believed to cause. Records indicate that coal miners are reported to experience among the most frequent and severe occupational injuries of workers in the United States. The reliability of mine operators' reports to the Health and Safety Analysis Center of the US Department of Labor of days lost from work by injured miners is 0. 267.
