Abstract
This U.S. Bureau of Mines paper analyzes the 1982 coal mine accident data collected by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) for key equipment types, by mine type, and by geographic region. The differences in hazards associated with the various equipment types are studied both in absolute (i.e., total number of incidences) and relative (i.e., incidence rate or the number of incidences per 200,000 employee or exposure hours) terms. The paper compares and contrasts the total number of incidents as well as incidence rates classified by several types of severity measures such as lost workdays cases, mean number of lost workdays per lost workdays case, fatal cases, nonfatal cases without lost workdays, total number of cases, and total number of lost workdays. This statistical analysis shows that significant differences in hazards exist not only due to equipment type but also due to mine type and geographic region.
