Abstract
This report examines coal miner absenteeism and its relationship to accidents and injuries at underground mines. A total of 19 mines participated in various phases of this 3-year project. Miners at the participating mines ranged in number from 185 to 776. The data consisted of the miners' daily attendance records and detailed interviews with approximately 50 miners from each mine. The interviews contained questions about the miners' satisfaction with various on-the-job and off-the-job factors, their perceptions of the mines' absenteeism policies, the reasons or causes for their own absences, and the miners' demographic characteristics. Accident and injury data from six mines were used in parametric and multiple regression analysis of the absenteeism-accident relationship. The data represented activity during approximately 80,000 miner-days worked. Strategies for reducing absenteeism are discussed.
