The high number of fatal accidents in the mining industry makes mine safety an important issue throughout the world. The risks to life are widespread, ranging from dust explosions and the collapse of mine stopes to flooding and general mechanical errors. Mine Safety combines detailed information on safety in mining with methods and mathematics that can be used to preserve human life.

By compiling various recent research results and data into one volume, Mine Safety eliminates the need to consult many diverse sources in order to obtain vital information. It enables readers to delve deeper into a particular area, providing the source of most of the material presented in references at the end of each chapter.

Chapters cover a broad range of topics, including:

• human factors and error in mine safety;

• mining equipment safety;

• safety in offshore industry; and

• programmable electronic mining system safety.

They are written in such a manner that the reader requires no previous knowledge to understand their contents. Examples and solutions are given at appropriate places, and there are numerous problems to test the reader’s comprehension.

Mine Safety will prove useful for many individuals, including engineering and safety professionals working in the mining industry, researchers, instructors, and undergraduate and graduate students in the field of mining engineering.
