Non-Chargeable Mining Deaths

MSHA investigates all deaths on mine property; however, some deaths are unrelated to mining activity and are not counted in the statistics MSHA uses to assess the safety performance of the mining industry. These deaths are termed “non-chargeable” and include homicides, suicides, deaths due to natural causes, and deaths involving trespassers.
