Excerpt
FOREWORD: This publication represents the first comprehensive surveillance report on injuries and illnesses in the U.S. mining industry. The tracking of occupational injuries, illnesses, and hazards, documents the Nation’s progress in reducing the burden of work-related diseases and injuries and may help identify old and new problems that require additional research and prevention efforts. It is through surveillance data that we have been able to document that during the 20th century, deaths in the mining industry dropped approximately 37-fold and injury fatality rates have decreased approximately 13-fold, to 25 per 100,000 during 1996-1997. Much of this success can be attributed to research, which led to workplace interventions (such as safer equipment and improved ventilation), and regulations. Despite the progress that has been made in reducing the death and injury toll in mining, much work remains to be done.
