Mining continues to be a dangerous activity, whether large-scale industrial mining or small-scale artisanal mining. Not only are there accidents, but exposure to dust and toxins, along with stress from the working environment or managerial pressures, give rise to a range of diseases that affect miners. I look at mining and health from various personal perspectives: that of the ordinary man much of life depends on mined elements in the house, car and phone ; as a member of the Society for Environmental Geochemistry and Health environmental contamination and degradation leads to ill health in nearby communities ; as a public health doctor mining health is affected by many factors, usually acting in a mix, ranging from individual inheritance—genetic makeup, sex, age; personal choices—diet, lifestyle; living conditions—employment, war; social support—family, local community; environmental conditions—education, work; to national and international constraints—trade, economy, natural world ; as a volunteer mining health costs are not restricted to miners or industry but borne by everyone who partakes of mining benefits—all of us ; and as a lay preacher the current global economy concentrates on profit at the expense of the health of miners. Partnership working by academics with communities, government and industry should develop evidence-based solutions.

Mine safety is a broad term referring to the practice of controlling and managing a wide range of hazards associated with the life cycle of mining -related activities. While the fundamental principle of mine safety is to remove health and safety risks to mine workers, mining safety practice may also focus on the reduction of risks to plant machinery together with the structure and orebody of the mine. Safety has long been a concern in the mining business, especially in underground mining. This disaster was surpassed only by the Benxihu Colliery accident in China on April 26, , which killed 1, miners. Government figures from China indicate that 5, Chinese miners die in accidents each year, while other reports have suggested a figure as high as 20, Mining ventilation is a significant safety concern for many miners.
