Información bibliográfica National Coal Board, Safety Branch, Hobart House, Grosvenor Place, London SW1X 7AE, United Kingdom, Nov. 1973. 26p. Illus.
Resumen A review of injury trends is followed by information on: main causes of accidents (falls of ground, haulage and transport, machinery, explosives, explosions and ignitions, fires, shafts and winding, electricity); stumbling, falling and slipping; surface accidents; accident prevention activities. Accident statistics for 1972-73 and the results of pit safety campaigns are appended in tabular form. There was an increase in the fatal accident rate per 100,000 manshifts worked to 0.13 (0.10 in 1971/72), whereas the rate for serious injuries fell from 1.07 to 0.99. The total number of injuries involving more than 3 days' absence from work increased by 5,000 to 70,000. It is stated that accidents continue to occur as a result of sub-standard pit practices and physical situations which are outmoded. Indiscipline, poor design and breaches of the regulations still play an important role.
