Financeguy, the doctors and nurses aren't the ones being killed in hospitals, it's the patients. sometimes they get sick too. You can't make many occupations 100% safe but you can mitigate the risk to the point that only an unpredictable factor can cause injury as opposed to violations of safety regulations causing increased injury or death for employees.
Well said

This kind of negligence is not only in the mining industry, it is in lots of other places too. The profit is the bottom line

Mining fatalities have dropped every year President Bush has been in the White House, according to the Mine Safety and Health Administration. Since 2001, mining deaths averaged 63 a year, which is 30% lower than during the Clinton administration. The fatality rate has dropped as well -- it was 31% lower in 2004 than it was in the last year of the Clinton administration.

In fact, it was during the Clinton years that the long-term decline in mining deaths stalled out, only to return to its historic downward trend after he left for private life.

ICG just bought the mine in November 2005. Despite the history of the mine, they were/are trying to turn things around...
My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the miners who were lost. And as for Randal McCloy, i wish you Godspeed.
