2 INJURY EXPERIENCE IN THE COKING INDUSTRY, 1951
Pennsylvania employed more men in the coking industry in 1951 than any
other State-almost three times as many as Ohio, its nearest competitor.
Indiana, New York, Alabama, West Virginia, and Illinois were next in rank,
each employing more than a thousand workers. Ohio had the best safety
record, followed in order by Michigan, Indiana, West Virginia, Alabama,
Illinois, and Minnesota; the total injury frequency rate (fatal and nonfatal) for
each of these States was less than 10 injuries for each million man-hours of work
exposure. More men suffered injuries at coke plants in Pennsylvania, New
York, and Virginia than in other States.
