3/1/2010 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis publication details the results of NIOSH studies to examine operating speeds based on usage and seam height.
2/1/2010 - Conference papersThe goal of this study was to determine the potential saving in workers' compensation (WC) premiums that could be achieved due to a reduction in rock fall injuries after roof screening.
7/1/2008 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper updates an earlier report by the authors that studied electrical injuries from 1992 to 1998. The previous information is expanded and supplemented with fatal and nonfatal injury rates and trends through 2002.
11/1/2004 - Information CircularsThis report analyzes mine fires for all U.S. underground and surface metal/nonmetal mining categories during 1990-2001 by state and six successive 2-year time periods.
1/9/2024 - Research projectsA project to characterize the effect that inexperience has on risk of injury and to reduce related risks for miners new to the industry, to specific worksites, or to their jobs or tasks.
4/1/2022 - Data and statisticsMining Fact Sheets covering a variety of topics of general interest relating to mining operations, employees, fatalities, and nonfatal lost-time injuries.
Burden Associated with Nonfatal Slip and Fall Injuries in the Surface Stone, Sand, and Gravel Mining Industry12/1/2019 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA analysis documenting the burden associated with nonfatal slip, trip, and fall incidents at surface stone, sand, and gravel mines from 2008 through 2017.
10/25/2016 - Research projectsA project to develop and strengthen the use of surveillance data to identify priorities, trends, and emerging issues within the mining industry.
10/22/2016 - Research projectsA project to develop an economics program to determine the economic consequences of occupational fatal and non-fatal injury and use that information to improve program planning, intervention evaluation, and policy analysis.
