Prevalence of hearing loss among noise-exposed workers within the Mining and Oil and Gas Extraction sectors, 2006-2015
Background: The purpose of this study was to estimate the prevalence of hearing loss (HL) among noise‐exposed US workers within the Mining, and Oil and Gas Extraction (OGE) sectors. Methods: Audiograms of 1.9 million workers across all industries (including 9389 in Mining and 1076 in OGE) from 2006 to 2015 were examined. Prevalence and adjusted risk as compared to a reference industry (Couriers and Messengers) were estimated for all industries combined and the Mining and OGE sectors and subsectors. Results: The prevalences of HL in Mining and OGE were 24% and 14%, respectively, compared with 16...
Linking Compensation and Health Surveillance Data Sets to Improve Knowledge of US Coal Miners’ Health
Objective: Increase knowledge of US coal miners’ respiratory health by linking data from the black lung benefits program (BLBP) and the coal workers’ health surveillance program (CWHSP). Methods: BLBP claims data from 2000 through 2013 was linked to CWHSP data from 1970 through 2016. Results: Overall, 273,644 miners participated in CWHSP, 37,548 in BLBP, and 22,903 in both programs. Median age of miners at their time of first/only participation in CWHSP was 28 and 32 years, respectively. BLBP claimants were older (median age 59). Thirty-nine percent of BLBP claimants had not participated...

This report provides updates to fatalities published in the Oil and Gas Extraction Worker Fatalities, 2014 Mid-year Report: January 1, 2014–June 30, 2014, and also includes fatalities from the second half of the year. It is intended to serve as a resource for health and safety professionals, managers, and other stakeholders in identifying...
Occupational Fatalities Resulting from Falls in the Oil and Gas Extraction Industry, United States, 2005–2014
During 2003–2013, fatality rates for oil and gas extraction workers decreased for all causes of death except those associated with fall events, which increased 2% annually during 2003–2013 (1). To better understand risk factors for these events, CDC examined fatal fall events in the oil and gas extraction industry during 2005–2014 using data from case investigations conducted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Sixty-three fatal falls were identified, accounting for 15% of all fatal events. Among fatal falls, 33 (52%) workers fell from a height of >30...
Silicosis and coal workers pneumoconiosis 2016
Annual new cases assessed for Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB) have reduced during the last 10 years from around 80 cases per year on average during 2005-2007 to around 40 cases per year during 2013-2015. Over 50 estimated new cases were identified by specialist chest doctors in both 2014 and 2015. Prior to this annual estimated cases fluctuated between 10 and 30 cases per year. There have typically been between 10 and 20 annual deaths from silicosis over the last 10 years, with 10 deaths in 2014.

The Economic Impact of Psychological Distress in the Australian Coal Mining Industry
Objective: The aim of this study was to estimate the economic impact of psychological distress among employees of the Australian Coal Mining Industry. Methods: Sample data were gathered from 1456 coal mining staff across eight sites in two Australian states. Two measures were taken of work time lost over four weeks due to psychological distress: (1) full-day absences; (2) presenteeism. Lost work time was valued using hourly wages. Sample data was modeled to estimate annual monetary losses for the Australian Coal Mining Industry. Results: For the sample, estimated annual value of time lost due to...
Study of Spanish mining accidents using data mining techniques
Mining is an economic sector with a high number of accidents. Mines are hazardous places and workers can suffer a wide variety of injuries. Utilizing a database composed of almost 70,000 occupational accidents and fatality reports corresponding to the decade 2003-2012 in the Spanish mining sector, the paper analyzes the main causes of those accidents. To carry out the study, powerful statistical tools have been applied, such as Bayesian classifiers, decision trees or contingency tables, among other data mining techniques. Statistical analyses have been performed using Weka software and behavioral...
Production output pressure and coal mine fatality seasonal variations in China, 2002-2011
INTRODUCTION: The death rate per million tons (DRPMT) is considered as the key index to the quality of coal mine safety management. The index for 2002-2011 revealed a marked improvement in China coal mine safety management during the 10-year period. However, when seasonally adjusted, the 2002-2011 fatality data showed a strong seasonal variation trend. This was reasonably consistent for the 10years, which suggests that it was always the weak link in Chinese coal mine safety management over that time. However, the overall annual decrease in DRPMT was not reflected by any noticeable improvement in...
Factors associated with fatal mining injuries among contractors and operators
OBJECTIVE: To explore factors associated with fatal accidents among contractors and operators by using the Mine Safety and Health Administration database. METHODS: Cross-sectional data on 157,410 miners employed by operators or contractors during 1998-2007 were analyzed using logistic regression and multiple imputation. RESULTS: Univariate odds of fatal versus nonfatal accident were 2.8 (95% confidence interval, 2.3 to 3.4) times higher for contractors than operators. In a multivariable model, fatality was associated with contractor, less experience at the current mine, and occurrence at more than...
Evaluation of occupational injuries with lost days among opencast coal mine workers through logistic regression models
Despite precautions, mining remains the most hazardous occupation, and coal mining is one of the most dangerous industries for non-fatal occupational accidents. Accidents are complicated events with many factors that affect their formation, and statistical evaluation of accident records can produce valuable information that may prevent such accidents. In this study, a logistic regression analysis method was applied to non-fatal occupational injuries from 1996 to 2009 in an opencast coal mine for Western Lignite Corporation (WLC) of Turkish Coal Enterprises (TKI). The accident records were categorized...

National Survey of the Mining Population
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducted the first comprehensive survey of the U.S. mining population in more than 20 years. The National Survey of the Mining Population captured the current profile of the U.S. mining workforce. Data collection began in March 2008 and continued through August 2008. Randomly selected mining operations in all of the major mining sectors (i.e., coal, metal, nonmetal, stone, and sand and gravel) received the survey and had the option of completing a paper or web-based questionnaire. A total of 737 mining operations returned completed...
Status and future tasks of coal mining safety in China
In general, contexts of coal mining safety involve technology, administration and socioeconomic environment as well. This paper presents statistical analysis of China coal mine accidents in recent years and analyzes the reasons causing coal mining high risk from technical and socioeconomic viewpoints. Social and economic reform has been unleashing social, economical factors that are driving a fundamental transformation of new workplace safety problems and making China coal mining safety take on Chinese features. Compared with major state-owned and local state-owned coalmines, township and village...
Estimation des coûts des lésions professionnelles : une étude de faisabilité dans le secteur minier
L'Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) a testé la faisabilité de développer des indicateurs économiques en SST en produisant un portrait des coûts des lésions professionnelles dans le secteur minier pour la période 2005-2007. Malgré leurs efforts de prévention et l'amélioration de la situation, les mines demeurent un secteur à risque en raison de la fréquence et de la gravité des accidents. Les chercheurs ont appliqué trois...
