Proper ventilation and electric machinery promoted safe working conditions. Mining, however, was extremely dangerous work, and the WLCC had its share of accidents and health concerns. (See Document 5.).

Abstract. An extended Cobb-Douglas production function is developed and estimated in order to examine the extent to which the decline in measured productivity in underground coal mining can be attributed to (1) changes in safety conditions which reflect movement along a product transformation frontier relating safety and marketable output and (2) a shift downward of the entire transformation.
