Coal mining is not as prevalent as it once was in the UK, but with12 deep mines still in operation, Accident Advice Helpline, is available to handle any no win no fee* in Eastwood personal injury claims that miners may need help with.
Eastwood’s links with coal mining
The town of Eastwood in Nottinghamshire played an important role in the UK coal mining community. When the industry was in full swing, the coal mining industry employed a total of 1.2 million workers across the land, and the accident rate was appalling, with approximately 2,000 miners being killed in the workplace every year.
Here in Eastwood, at the height of coal production back in 1963, Moorgreen Colliery alone produced over 1 million tons of coal per year. But that was many years ago, and the last mine in the area closed in 1985.
Coal mining is still a dangerous occupation
Despite the many technical, and health and safety improvements, deep coal mining, where miners work up to 1000 metres below the surface, is still a dangerous occupation, as recent statistics show.
- At Daw Mill Colliery near Coventry 4 miners died in 2006/7
- At Welbeck Colliery in Nottinghamshire 1 man died in 2007
- At Gleison Colliery in Swansea 4 man died in 2013
- At Kellinlgey Colliery, N Yorks 1 man died in 2013
There are now only 3,500 miners still employed, and in the last decade, there have been 17 fatal accidents, and over 400 major injuries. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have experience at dealing with injuries in the workplace, including industries such as quarrying and mining.
