Coal-Mine Accidents in the United States and Foreign Countries

Description: From Introduction: "The lack of comparable and accurate statistics of coal-mine accidents in the united States as a whole led the Bureau of Mines in 1911 to undertake the collection of such data.

The bureau feels that in presenting the tables embodied in this report it is offering the and comparable statistics of coal-min accidents for the country as a whole that have ever been published."

THE EFFECT OF THE $sub 4$TENDENCY TO REPORT INJURIES$sub 4$ ON MINOR ACCIDENT STATISTICS: A FOLLOW-UP STUDY

Description: Thesis submitted to Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville. Statistical methods were used in an attempt to determine the effect of the tendency to report accidents on the systemic variance in minor injury data over a 6-yr period. The population surveyed included 245 journeymen of 9 skilled craft groups continuously employed during the period. Results indicate that injury and non- injury visits to the dispensary were relatively stable during the 6-yr period and that there was a significant positive relation between non-occupational and injury visits during the period of study.
