Abstract

Injury and illness in industry are at best complex problems. One of the biggest of these problems is the overexertion injury. This is commonly characterized as a strain or sprain injury. In its most severe form, it occurs to the back and necessitates disk surgery. This study collected and analyzed existing data of job-related overexertion injury data for coal miners employed by a major coal company during the years 1977-82. The purpose of this analysis was to determine the magnitude of overexertion injuries, to determine the severity of the injuries, and to identify specific activities that account for large numbers of back injuries.
