Abstract
A cost benefit analysis was conducted by comparing the industry cost to install protective structures on low-coal face equipment with the benefits paid for injuries and/or fatalities considered preventable by the use of these structures. The industry costs were based on estimates by original equipment manufacturers and rebuild shops for installing protective structures on new and rebuilt face equipment. The accident benefits were based on evaluations performed by the Bureau of Mines accident cost indicator model. Industry-wide population data were developed on low-coal face equipment and injuries and/or fatalities preventable with protective structures. The results of the analysis are to be used as a tool by the Bureau of Mines in determining the feasibility of continuing development of cab and canopy technology for low-coal equipment.
