In 1969, the number of fatal injuries in the coal mining industry was lower than in any previous year and the number of nonfatal injuries was lower than in any preceding year except 1968. Fatal injuries in 1969 totaled 203 with frequency rates of 0.85 Per million man-hours of worktime and 0.36 Per million tons of coal. These rates were new annual lows. Nonfatal injuries totaled 9,917 with frequency rates of 41.76 Per million man-hours and 17.42 Per million tons. The severity rate for fatal and nonfatal injuries combined was 7,359 days lost or charged per million man-hours. The average severity was 173 days lost or charged per injury. These statistics represent the injury experience of an average of 133,302 employees per day, working an average of 225 days in 5,955 coal mines for a total of 237.5 million man-hours worked and a coal output of 569.2 million tons.
