Excerpt from Sixteenth, Seventeenth and Eighteenth Annual Report: Coal Mines in the State of West Virginia, U. S. A., For the Years Ening June 30, 1898, 1899, 1900
While the statistical portion of this report is valuable in many ways, the greatest value Of the should be Obtained through the data given relative to accidents, their causes and prevention.
The primary purpose of this department was and is to exam ine coal mines as to their sanitation and ventilation and secure data upon all accidents in the coal mines of the State with the sole Object of learning the conditions which govern the causes of accidents. And to suggest remedies which may prevent acci dents and which may secure to the miners proper ventilation and a healthful and safe condition in which to work.
The statistical parts relative to the production of coal and coke, etc., are of secondary value compared with the data rela tive to the loss of human life.
The information herein contained has been carefully prepared, and should any Of the figures be inaccurate in stating produc tions the fault, if any, will be with those reporting to this Office.
