White House & Department of Labor - Reduce Accidents in Mines

Partner
US Department of Labor / Mine Safety & Health Administration

Challenge Questions
Can we leverage mine inspections reports to determine the likelihood that a mine will have an accident in the future?

Data
The Mine Safety and Health Administration data sets on Accident Injuries Data Set and Inspections Data Set

Datasets and details:
http://www.msha.gov/OpenGovernmentData/OGIMSHA.asp

Sample Data: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OoWdDKiowlInmm26F8yiDYcz4poQ7LOVxfsj9lzeaek/edit?usp=sharing

Impact
Although the number of mining accidents is at a historical low, we can leverage data science to help make the jobs of miners even safer. There are 40+ mining fatalities annually, and with your hack, your team can help eliminate mining accidents by connecting inspection reports with both accidents and injuries in mines.
