Abstract

Bennett, J.D. and Passmore, D.L., 1984. Days lost from work due to injuries in U.S. underground bituminous coal mines, 1975-1981. Journal of Occupational Accidents, 5: 265-278. Relationships among mine and injured miner characteristics and days lost from work are examined from 82,705 injuries in underground bituminous coal mines in the U.S.A. from 1975 through 1981. Injury severity varies by the injured miner's job classification and age, location in the mine where the injury occurs, the mining system used, and the year that the injury happened. Injury severity is not related to the injured miner's total mining experience, job experience, and experience in the mine in which the injury occurs. Time elapsed from the start of the shift to injury occurrence is not related to injury severity. Injuries that result in days lost from work can happen over a range of mine and injured miner characteristics... not merely to miners working at the spot where coal is removed from its natural deposit, as is commonly believed.
