Resumen 1977 was free from major incidents, and accident figures and incidence rates for coal mines were the lowest since mid-19th century. 54 persons were killed and 599 seriously injured in mines and quarries, compared with 74 and 627 respectively in 1976, an overall reduction of 6.8% and a reduction of 27% in fatal accidents. In coal mines 40 persons were killed and 501 seriously injured, compared with 50 and 535 in 1976. Total accidents fell from 1.12 per 100,000 manshifts in 1976 to 1.04 in 1977. In mines other than coal, 2 persons were killed and 16 seriously injured (8 and 20 in 1976), a reduction of 36% in total accidents. In quarries 12 persons were killed and 82 seriously injured (16 and 72 in 1976), an increase of 7%. Detailed statistics are given. The report contains sections on coal, stratified ironstone, shale, fireclay and miscellaneous mines, and quarries. Typical causes of surface, underground and quarry accidents are illustrated. The Scottish District report, 1976, contains corresponding information.
