NTIS: PB/81-222325 :219 pages
This report was prepared to illustrate a model for projecting employment and training demands in the coal mining industry. The report details a methodology developed to translate forecasts of regional coal production and mining productivity into estimates of training incidences necessary to meet both the MSHA safety regulations and internal skills training demands. The model is responsive to estimates of employment turnover and the job mobility of the coal mining work force as configured from a summarization of job histories of approximately 15,000 miners collected during a mine site assessment of 47 coal mining operations located throughout the nation. In addition, historical production, productivity, and employment data are examined for the metal and nonmetal mining industries and projections of safety-related training demands are presented.
