Resumen In the United States in 2003, 4357 stone mining operations reported employment, occupational accident and occupational disease data to the Mine Safety and Health Administration. Stone mines comprised 30.3% of all mining operations. They employed 67,474 workers, corresponding to 69,239 full-time equivalent employees. Within the mining sector, stone mine operator employees accounted for 27% of all employee hours reported. This information sheet summarizes the key statistics for stone mining operators in 2003, 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).
