Aug 18, 2021 Introduction. Coal mining is one of the most dangerous industries in the world. Human factors such as intentional violation, mismanagement, and defective design cause coal mining accidents ().The functional climate of the coal mining presents many hazards to personnel, including the proximity to machinery, hydraulic and electrical power, roof falls, and exposure to explosive mine gases and dust.
Mining safety. The coal industry takes the issue of safety very seriously modern coal mines have rigorous safety procedures, health and safety standards and worker education and training. Methane released from the coal seam and surrounding rock strata during mining can present a high risk of explosion at concentrations in air of 5-15%.
Jan 26, 2020 Today, coal mines follow rigorous safety procedures, high standards for health and safety, and also make sure that each worker receives proper education and training. These, among various other steps, have helped in making significant improvements in the safety of underground and opencast mining.
Central to the coal mining industrys approach to improving safety is the removal of miners from working-face dangers and potential health hazards.
