Osteoarthritis of the knee in coal miners

Report by the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council in accordance with Section 171 of the Social Security Administration Act 1992 considering prescription for osteoarthritis of the knee in coal miners. This review considers the case for prescription for osteoarthritis of the knee in miners from wear and tear or meniscal injuries outwith accidental events. Our inquiry follows a representation from an ex-Council member highlighting research evidence of an increased risk of the disease in miners. During the course of the review, the Council undertook its own literature search, made a call for evidence, and consulted with experts in the field and representatives from the coal mining industry.
