Dangers of West Virginia Coal Mines
Although it may be known for its ‘heavenly’ scenic beauty, West Virginia is also home to many mining operations and industries that often put pressure on workers to work long, strenuous hours in dangerous conditions. Managers are urged to cut corners or save time, which creates unsafe environments. Safety procedures may be ignored or only half-followed, which raises the likelihood of a coal mining accident.
Equipment alone can pose a threat – heavy equipment like drilling rigs, haul trucks, scoops, shuttle cars, in-plant railroads and trains, continuous mining, draglines, conveyors, percussion drills can all malfunction. Other hazards such as inadequate training, high walls, mine collapse, oxygen deprivation, electrocution, and exposure to harmful dust, gas, and chemicals may all contribute to the dangers workers face.
