Mining deaths at record low

The US Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration bi-annual update, Data at a Glance, shows an all-time low in the number of deaths caused by mine-related injuries for fiscal year 2016.

Fatality and injury rates for this period represent the lowest rates ever recorded, says MSHA.

It also shows that Calendar Year 2015 was the safest in US mining history.

Results of the latest fiscal year, which ended on September 30, 2016, indicate that 25 miners died from mining-related injuries.

It includes key indicator charts, dating back to 1978, with information on citations and orders issued, penalty assessment amounts, contested violations, fatality and injury rates, respirable dust samples taken since implementation of the respirable dust rule, respirable dust levels in underground mines, discrimination complaints and temporary reinstatements.
