Statistics: Nonmetal Operators

Introduction

The following maps and graphs represent data for Nonmetal Operators. The information is organized by Mines, Employees, Fatalities and Injuries. The Mines section contains information on the number and location of the mining operations. The Employees section details the number of employees and the number of employee hours. The Fatalities section presents the number of fatalities. The Injuries section presents the number and rate of nonfatal lost-time injuries by work locations and the number of injuries by accident class.

Mines

There were 4 fatalities in 2005, 2 fatalities in both 2003 and 2008, 1 each in 2004, 2007, and 2009. There were no fatalities in 2001, 2002, 2006, and 2010.

Injuries

Nonmetal Operator Nonfatal Lost-time Injuries, Underground, 2001-2010Nonmetal Operator Nonfatal Lost-time Injuries, Underground, 2001-2010: This chart displays the number and rate of underground nonmetal mining operator nonfatal lost-time injuries, excluding office employees, from 2001 through 2010. Full-time equivalent (FTE) employees equal 2,000 hours worked per year. There were 118 nonfatal lost-time injuries in 2001 with an injury rate of 4.6 per 100 FTEs. In 2010, there were 70 nonfatal lost-time injuries with a nonfatal lost-time injury rate of 2.7 per 100 FTEs.

Nonmetal Operator Nonfatal Lost-time Injuries, Underground, by Accident Class, 2006-2010Nonmetal Operator Nonfatal Lost-time Injuries, Underground, by Accident Class, 2006-2010: This pie chart displays the distribution of underground nonmetal nonfatal lost-time injuries by accident class for the period from 2006-2010. Excluding office employees, there were 409 underground nonmetal nonfatal lost-time injuries. Handling materials accounted for 29.1% of the injuries while Slip or fall of person had 21.3%. Powered haulage had 13.2% and Hand tools had 12.5%. Machinery caused 8.3% of the nonfatal injuries. Fall of ground (in place) which includes MSHA’s Accident/Injury/Illness Classifications for “Fall of face, rib, pillar, side , or highwall from in place” and “Fall of roof, back, or brow from in place” had 6.4% of the injuries. The All other category comprised 9.3% of the lost-time injuries.

Nonmetal Operator Nonfatal Lost-time Injuries, Surface, 2001-2010Nonmetal Operator Nonfatal Lost-time Injuries, Surface, 2001-2010: This chart displays the number and rate of surface nonmetal mining operator nonfatal lost-time injuries from 2001 through 2010, excluding office employees. Full-time equivalent (FTE) employees equal 2,000 hours worked per year. There were 570 nonfatal lost-time injuries in 2001 with an injury rate of 3.0 per 100 FTEs. In 2010, there were 264 nonfatal lost-time injuries with a nonfatal lost-time injury rate of 1.7 per 100 FTEs.

Nonmetal Operator Nonfatal Lost-time Injuries, Surface, by Accident Class, 2006-2010Nonmetal Operator Nonfatal Lost-time Injuries, Surface, by Accident Class, 2006-2010: This pie chart displays the distribution of surface nonmetal operator nonfatal lost-time injuries by accident class for the period from 2006-2010. Excluding office employees, there were 1,743 nonfatal lost-time injuries. Handling materials had 39.4% of the injuries, Slip or fall of person had 27.8 %, and Machinery had 9.7%. Nonfatal injury cases under machinery were reclassified as Fall of ground (from in place) if the source of the injury was caving rock, ore, etc. This reclassification is consistent with how MSHA classifies similar incidents which resulted in a fatal injury. Hand tools had 8.0% and Powered haulage had 7.3% of the injuries. The All other category had 7.8% of the injuries.
