Abstract
The primary objectives of this study (contract No. Ho122028) were to (1) determine the relationships in underground coal mining systems that affect the health and safety of mine personnel, (2) develop these relationships into quantitative health and safety indices, (3) develop a computer-based model for projecting and evaluating health and safety profiles for specific mining systems, and (4) establish the groundwork for a further study that would incorporate these data into an overall underground systems optimization procedure. A 3- year data bank was established containing employment, injury, geology, and mine characteristics information on 203 mines in Illinois, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Three types of indices were developed for use in evaluating health and safety aspects of underground coal mining systems.
