A Comparison of American Safety Performance to Other Countries.
Min Con J 1981 Aug; :45-51
Comparisons are made of indicators of safety performance in the United States and primarily the European coal-producing countries of the United Kingdom and the Federal Republic of Germany. Caveats are made that safety performance for U.S. room-and-pillar mining is being compared with European longwall mining and that even a comparison confined to U.S. longwall mining versus European longwall mining would be indirect at best due to important differences in mine development (e.g., U.S. multiple entries versus European single entries) and mining operations.
