Abstract
In 2002, a total of 7,125 sand and gravel mining operations reported employment to the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). A total of 36,535 employees, corresponding to 32,753 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees, were reported by sand and gravel operators. This is a 2.4% decrease in FTE employees from 2001. Ten work-related fatalities occurred among sand and gravel miners in 2002, compared to eight in 2001. There were 826 nonfatal lost-time injuries among sand and gravel employees occurring at a rate of 2.5 per 100 FTE employees. A total of 39,556 days lost from work resulted from these injuries. Twenty cases of occupational illness were reported to MSHA for sand and gravel employees.
