CONSOL Energy Mine Operations Earn West Virginia Safety Awards

The 2012 safety performance awards are based on statistics recorded from October 2011 through September 2012.

McElroy's 1,043 employees worked safely for 2.5 million hours with a 1.5 incident rate to earn the Eustace E. Frederick Milestones of Safety Award.

Peg Fork Mine's 47 employees worked 118,528 hours with zero accidents; the McElroy Mine Ireland Loadout's 18 employees worked safely during the period with zero accidents; and the Loveridge Mine's 713 employees worked 1,034,226 hours with an incident rate of 1.46 to achieve Mountaineer Guardian awards.  

"At CONSOL Energy, safety is a value," Mr. Harvey noted. "That value is reflected in the honors achieved at these mining locations and is proof positive that when employees view safety as a value, the results are found not only in the statistics which result in awards, but even more importantly in their ability to go home to their families each and every day just as they came to work. Our employees understand they are empowered to do whatever they need to do to work safely every day. We are proud of them and their achievements."

The West Virginia Office of Miners' Health, Safety and Training and the West Virginia Coal Association (Mining and Reclamation Association) established the Mountaineer Guardian Safety Awards Program in 1983 as a joint effort to promote safety in the coalfields of West Virginia. The special program gives recognition to mining workplaces where employees have accumulated qualifying amounts of production without experiencing a fatal accident. Mining operations are divided into categories, based on number of employees in order to be considered for the awards.

Inspectors for the West Virginia Office of Miners' Health, Safety & Training nominate companies who they feel have achieved a balance of production and safety. Selection criteria also includes safety program initiatives by the company; the nominated company's safety record; and its violation history.
