Coal mining is one of the most dangerous jobs in America. Miners work in small spaces underground, often while operating heavy equipment. It's easy to trip or fall in the darkness and the loud machinery can permanently damage your hearing. In addition, fires and explosions in coal mines have led to large-scale disasters that have killed thousands of workers. Even though safety regulations have reduced injuries and fatalities, accidents still occur.
