Need an accident solicitor in Stainforth?

The town of Stainforth in South Yorkshire is the location of the recently re-opened Hatfield Main Colliery. Situated next to the Doncaster-Goole Railway, the colliery has a history dating back to the early 1900s.

Over the years, the colliery has provided employment opportunities for hundreds of people, but despite improvements in equipment and procedures, it remains a dangerous place in which to work. According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the mining industry has a very high incidence of fatality, accounting for around 6% of all workplace accident deaths.

Common causes of mining accidents

The causes of accidents in mines are numerous, but typically result from the unsafe operation of machinery or a lack of personal protective equipment. Other factors that can cause or contribute to injuries and illnesses include:

• Gas leaks
• Explosions and fires
• Collapse of mining works
• Faulty equipment
• Mining-induced seismicity
• Flooding
