Miners' return to work following injuries in coal mines.

Abstract The occupational injuries in mines are common and result in severe socio-economical consequences. Earlier studies have revealed the role of multiple factors such as demographic factors, behavioral factors, health-related factors, working environment, and working conditions for mine injuries. However, there is a dearth of information about the role of some of these factors in delayed return to work (RTW) following a miner's injury. These factors may likely include personal characteristics of injured persons and his or her family, the injured person's social and economic status, and job characteristics. This study was conducted to assess the role of some of these factors for the return to work following coal miners' injuries.

AB  - BACKGROUND: The occupational injuries in mines are common and result in severe
      socio-economical consequences. Earlier studies have revealed the role of multiple
      factors such as demographic factors, behavioral factors, health-related factors, 
      working environment, and working conditions for mine injuries. However, there is 
      a dearth of information about the role of some of these factors in delayed return
      to work (RTW) following a miner's injury. These factors may likely include
      personal characteristics of injured persons and his or her family, the injured
      person's social and economic status, and job characteristics. This study was
      conducted to assess the role of some of these factors for the return to work
      following coal miners' injuries. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A study was conducted for 
      109 injured workers from an underground coal mine in the years 2000-2009. A
      questionnaire, which was completed by the personnel interviews, included among
      others age, height, weight, seniority, alcohol consumption, sleeping duration,
      presence of diseases, job stress, job satisfaction, and injury type. The data was
      analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier estimates and the Cox proportional hazard model. 
      RESULTS: According to Kaplan-Meier estimate it was revealed that a lower number
      of dependents, longer sleep duration, no job stress, no disease, no alcohol
      addiction, and higher monthly income have a great impact on early return to work 
      after injury. The Cox regression analysis revealed that the significant risk
      factors which influenced miners' return to work included presence of disease, job
      satisfaction and injury type. CONCLUSIONS: The mine management should pay
      attention to significant risk factors for injuries in order to develop effective 
      preventive measures. Med Pr 2016;67(6):729-742.

OAB - Publisher: WSTEP: Podczas pracy w kopalni czesto dochodzi do urazow, ktore
      powoduja powazne konsekwencje spoleczno-ekonomiczne. Wczesniej przeprowadzone
      badania wykazaly, ze powstanie urazow u gornikow wynika z wielu czynnikow -
      demograficznych i behawioralnych, a takze zwiazanych ze zdrowiem zatrudnionych
      oraz srodowiskiem pracy i jej warunkami. Brakuje jednak informacji na temat
      wplywu niektorych z tych czynnikow na opozniony czas powrotu do pracy
      poszkodowanego w wypadku. Moga sie do tego przyczyniac cechy osobowe pracownika i
      jego rodziny, jego status spoleczny i ekonomiczny, a takze warunki pracy. Celem
      badania byla ocena wplywu niektorych z ww. czynnikow na powrot do pracy
      poszkodowanego w wypadku w kopalni. MATERIAL I METODY: Grupe badana stanowilo 109
      pracownikow podziemnej kopalni wegla, ktorzy ulegli wypadkowi w latach 2000-
      -2009. W wyniku przeprowadzonego badania kwestionariuszowego uzyskano m.in.
      nastepujace dane: date urodzenia, wzrost i mase ciala, staz w zawodzie, spozycie 
      alkoholu, czas trwania snu, choroby, stres w pracy, satysfakcje z pracy i typ
      urazu. Do analizy wynikow uzyto estymatorow Kaplana-Meiera i modelu
      proporcjonalnego hazardu Coxa. WYNIKI: Obliczenia wykonane z wykorzystaniem
      metody Kaplana-Meiera wykazaly, ze duzy wplyw na szybki powrot do pracy po urazie
      ma mniejsza liczba czlonkow rodziny, dluzszy czas snu, brak stresu w pracy,
      niewystepowanie chorob, brak uzaleznienia od alkoholu i wyzszy dochod miesieczny.
      Natomiast analiza regresji Coxa wykazala, ze istotnymi czynnikami ryzyka, ktore
      wplywaja na czas powrotu gornikow do pracy, byly wystepowanie choroby,
      satysfakcja z pracy i typ urazu. WNIOSKI: Kierownictwo kopalni powinno zwracac
      uwage na istotne czynniki ryzyka urazow w celu opracowania efektywnych srodkow
      prewencyjnych. Med. Pr. 2016;67(6):729-742.
