Resumen In the United States in 2004, 7074 sand and gravel mining operations reported employment, occupational accident and occupational disease data to the Mine Safety and Health Administration. Sand and gravel mines were the largest mining sector, comprising 48.9% of all mining operations. They employed 37,000 workers, corresponding to 33,364 full-time equivalent employees and to 12.3% of all employee hours in the mining sector. This information sheet summarizes the key statistics for sand and gravel mining operations 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 (joint, tendon or muscle inflammation or irritation, hearing loss and heat stroke).
