Abstract
Recent employment figures (taken from the Mine Safety and Health Administration's database) indicate that the number of independent contractor emmployees working in the coal mining industry has doubled over the past ten years. As their numbers increase, they become a more visible segment of the industy. Increased exposure to mining hazards has also brought an increase in the number of fatalities involving independent contractor workers.
