US Coal mining, in particular, has a story of tremendous safety improvement. In 1900, there were 1489 fatalities out of a total of 458,881 workers. In 2004, there were 28 fatalities out of 108,734 workers. [There were just 22 coal mining fatalities in 2005, but the total number of workers is not tallied].

In 2004, there were 317 fatalities among those farming (crop production) and the aggregate number for agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting was 659 fatalities.

The year-end statistics for 2005 which include every single US mine – surface and underground, all metals and minerals including stone, sand and gravel operations – show 57 total deaths.

“2005 is ranking as one of the safest years ever,” said Bristol Voss, Mining Industry Spokesperson and President of Allmining.com.

“Mining today in the US mining is the safest it has ever been,” said Voss.

“There are mines in the US which have gone years without any sort of (mandated) shut downs and have over one million hours without any injuries at all, such as the Bingham Canyon mine in Utah, owned by Kennecott Utah Copper,” said Voss.

“I wouldn’t rush to judgement and tar an entire industry based on the tragic events at the Sago Mine in West Virginia,” said Voss. “When an airline goes down you don’t damn the entire aviation industry, you look at what went wrong in that particular case,” said Voss.
