The New Sketch India Republic Day Spec No 1972 Jan; (Jan):8 pages
This article is a presentation on coal mining health and safety research which was made to the National Safety Congress in Chicago, Illinois, Oct. 25, 1971. The federal Bureau of Mines research program to improve health and safety in the coal mines is comprehensive and deals with problems from a variety of approaches. The Congress and the American people have given the Bureau of Mines the task of improving safety in the coal mines. This is certainly not a simple task. The health and safety problems in U.S. coal mines have been there for decades and cannot be solved overnight. However, with the help of the academic and industrial communities and the coal industry, many of the urgent problems can be overcome within a relatively short time. New and improved mining systems can be developed that will provide U.S. miners with better working environments and greater safety protection.
