Abstract
In past years, safety in the mining industry has focused on extraction and production activities. Viewing injury data from the 1990s within a broader paradigm, this paper focuses not on specific injuries linked to extraction and production of minerals, but on mining injuries occurring within the context of worker construction, maintenance, and repair activities. A definition is offered for these activities. Data from all commodities and from both operator and contractor are presented. Overall in the mining industry during 1993-1997, 39% of injuries occurred while the employees were performing activities related to construction, maintenance, and repair. Implications for safety training are discussed.
