Some of the topics to be covered at the conference include 'Working on an effective legislative framework and its compliance';'Promoting a Proactive Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment Culture during Decision Making' ; 'Studying current trends and control mechanisms to reduce fall of ground accidents' and 'Driving preventive and control measures for some occupational hazards in mining'

A miner's world is a dangerous place whether they operate underground or deal with equipment above the ground. Hazards, accidents, diseases and disorders cause tremendous emotional strain to miners and huge financial losses to mine owners. In the wake of recent mine explosions in Soma, Turkey where more than 300 miners lost their lives, this conference will provide a platform for professionals to learn what global mining giants are doing to safeguard their human assets by building a safety culture.
