||In the United States in 2004, 2550 mining contractors reported employment, occupational accident and occupational disease data to the Mine Safety and Health Administration. They employed 30,228 workers, corresponding to 17,964 full-time equivalent employees and to 6.6% of all employee hours in the coal mining sector. This information sheet summarizes the key statistics for coal miner contractors in 2004, including fatalities, non-fatal injuries (mainly due to materials handling, slips and falls, with the back being the most frequently-injured part of the body) and occupational diseases (hearing loss, coal workers' pneumoconiosis).
