Coal And Metal Miners Take Risks Above Ground And Below Ground
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the Mine Safety and Health Administration acknowledge the dangers that miners face. Their research shows that most deadly accidents above ground involve transportation devices such as rail cars, mining trucks and front-end loaders. Many above-ground accidents also involve machinery such as power shovels and drills. Underground, workers are in the greatest danger from falling earth and collapsing shafts.
Whether you have been harmed by breathing coal dust or quartz dust, you were injured in a collapsing stockpile, you were caught in an explosion or you suffered other harm, Romano & Associates, PLLC, is here to help.
Loggers And Timber Workers Also Face Danger On A Daily Basis
In West Virginia, the economy depends on the logging industry. It is a vital generator of employment and manufacturing. However, logging is also known as one of the most dangerous jobs, with a fatality rate more than 21 times higher than the overall rate in the U.S.
West Virginia loggers continue to work in spite of these dangers, while more than seven out of every 1,000 die on the job each year. In addition to these deaths, nearly 300 suffer injuries that are labeled more severe than those in other industries.
