Peabody Energy's Cottage Grove Mine Surpasses Three Years Without A Reportable Incident



Aug 15, 2014

Employees at Peabody Energy's Cottage Grove Mine in Southern Illinois have reached a safety milestone, surpassing three years without an incident causing employees to miss a day of work.

"Our employees at Cottage Grove have achieved a tremendous safety milestone, and one that inspires pride in all of us at Peabody," said Peabody President - Americas Kemal Williamson. "Safety is a core value, part of our mission and a way of life here. Our goal as a company is zero incidents of any kind. The employees of Cottage Grove should be commended for reaching that target. Their focus and commitment to safety day in and day out is an outstanding example to all of us."

Cottage Grove has operated free of a reportable incident since July 15, 2011, producing more than 5 million tons of coal in that time. The mine's year-to-date incidence rate of zero compares to a 3.42 incidence rate per 200,000 hours worked among U.S. mines, based on the latest data. Cottage Grove shipped 1.9 million tons of coal in 2013 to electricity generating customers. Cottage Grove also earned the company's President's Safety Award in both 2012 and 2013 for achieving the best U.S. safety performance for a Peabody surface operation.

Through June 2014, seven Peabody operations worldwide have operated for the past six months without a reportable incident.
