Federal prosecutors in the western district of Kentucky have indicted eight officials from the Armstrong Coal company for intentionally submitting fake safety reports that hid the amount of coal dust their miners were exposed to.
The allegedly fraudulent practices at Armstrong were first revealed in a 2014 HuffPost report.
At the time, miners at the company’s Parkway Mine in Muhlenberg County went on record saying they’d been pressured by management to register artificially low readings on their dust pumps, devices that miners wear to measure coal dust in a mine’s atmosphere. They typically accomplished that by wearing their dust pumps for only a fraction of their shift, thereby collecting a misleadingly low amount.
The indictment issued Wednesday makes the same allegations, calling it a conspiracy to “conceal from MSHA the ongoing, systemic and pervasive violation of mandatory health and safety standards.”
