Abstract

ALABAMA Coal Operators Study Conditions of Employees. —The Alabama Coal Operators' Association during the last two years has given considerable attention to the subject of accident prevention both on the surface and underground. This work has been supplemented by the organization and training of a number of first-aid corps. At the annual meeting of the association in August the subject of tuberculosis was given special consideration, particularly those features relating to its prevention and cure in its early stages. In extension of this general policy the association has just had made a social and sanitary survey of the coal mining camps represented in the organization. The work as outlined is rather comprehensive, embracing housing conditions, drinking-water supplies, closets, sewage and garbage disposal, etc. The rather ililli cult problems of education and recreation will also be given proper consideration.
