This report provides the results of a comprehensive investigation of underground coal mine fatal and nonfatal accidents for the years 1966 through 1970. In terms of defining specific relationships between accidents and 64 equipment models, this report represents a major contribution to improvement in the safe operation of the identified equipment types. Specific hazards associated with each type of equipment have been identified and investigated throughout their unit operations in the mining cycle. Recommendations for improving the safety of these operations are provided in the report.
