Abstract
From 1987 through 1996, 13 fatalities occurred at underground operations in the U.S. stone mining industry. A review of the underground limestone mine injury data for this 10-year period indicated a high fatality concentration in one area: ground failures. Approximately 92 percent of the operator fatalities involved falls of face, rib, pillar, side, highwall, roof or back. Further, more than 11 percent of the operator non-fatal days lost incidents reported during this period more classified as ground control accidents.
