No 2006 Deaths in Indiana's Underground Coal Mines

The Indiana Department of Labor's Bureau of Mines, the Indiana Coal Council, and related organizations recently celebrated the fatality-free year Indiana's underground coal sector achieved in 2006. The same thing happened in 2005.

"We are proud of Indiana's coal mining safety record," the council's Nat Noland said during the ceremony at Vincennes University, which the department considers the home of Indiana's mine safety and technology training.

"Given the events in West Virginia and Kentucky over the last year, it brings home just how important miner safety is," said Lori Torres, Indiana's commissioner of labor. "Mine safety is and will be a priority for the Department of Labor, and we are proud that Indiana mines are putting forth continued effort in such a responsible way."
