Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


For more than 29 years the Safety and Health Commission for the mining and other extractive industries has been trying to promote an exchange of knowledge and experience, in order that improvements and application of new health and safety technology be introduced as quickly as possible throughout the industry. This was the purpose of the conference reported in this volume. Thirty-three papers are included and are divided into the following sections: introduction (mining and quarrying in the EEC countries: France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Belgium and Spain); reducing the risk of accident in the quarrying industries; safety in industries other than underground coalmining; protection and health in the mining and quarrying industries. The remaining sections deal with protecting health, training as an aid to improved health and safety and the worker involvement in safety. The final section examines the role of the inspectorate in promoting improved health and safety in the United Kingdom and Italy.
