A model of unsafe behavior in coal mines based on game

Jan 01, 2013 A general mathematical model of coal miners’ unsafe behavior has been established from the perspective of behavioral game theory to find new ways of quantitatively studying coal mine safety management practice. This model is based on the above discussion and uses a relative theoretical model for reference,. It refers to staff choice in

Risk Assessment of Miners' Unsafe Behaviors: A Case Study

The authors selected 200 gas explosion accidents of coal mine enterprises in recent years, and extracted a large number of workers' unsafe behaviors.

Risk Assessment of Miners’ Unsafe Behaviors: A Case Study

many countries have adopted advanced coal mine production equipment and technology to ensure the safety of miners. However, for coal mine production accidents in China, gas explosion accidents are still a prominent problem in the field of coal mine safety and occupy an absolute proportion in major and special mine accidents [2,1 7].

The Hazards of 19th Century Coal Mining eHISTORY

A system to ventilate the mine and to provide fresh air to the miners. A special problem in coal mines was the methane (a gas) that sometimes accompanied coal, and which could--and too often did--catch fire and explode. Andrew Roy was one of the expert coal miners who migrated from Britain to work in American mines.

Health and environmental impact of the coal industry

Dangers to miners. Historically, coal mining has been a very dangerous activity, and the list of historical coal mining disasters is long. The principal hazards are mine wall failures and vehicle collisions; underground mining hazards include suffocation, gas poisoning, roof collapse and gas explosions.

Plus, the coal-mining pay is good — $80,000, sometimes up to $100,000 a year. Compare that with the pay at Wal-Mart, a fifth of that at best, and factor in that mining is a family tradition, and the choice begins to make sense. For some, there is also a thrill to descending deep below the earth’s surface and facing danger, says Blair.

The Effects of Roof and Floor Interface Slip on Coal

The effect of the interface slip mechanism on the behavior of coal pillars was modeled by utilizing the strain soften- ing model with an interface at the coalbed boundary. In this model, 18.3 m wide by 3.1 m high pillars are separated 'This does not imply endorsement of the program by the US. Bureau of Mines.

Environmental Risks of Mining

Mining is an inherently invasive process that can cause damage to a landscape in an area much larger than the mining site itself. The effects of this damage can continue years after a mine has shut down, including the addition to greenhouse gasses, death of flora and fauna, and erosion of land and habitat.

In its infancy Ernest was known locally as a “model mining village” of 156 houses, two churches, a school, and a community center. During the first several years of development at the site the R & P opened four drift type mines in the upper Freeport E coal seam and built 274 beehive coke ovens, which by 1909 had an annual production of

The U.S. coal industry serves a vital role in the nation’s economy by producing fuel for more than half of its electricity. Despite the industry’s importance, industry financial data for 2005—the strongest year for the coal industry in recent years—shows that it is a relatively small industry with revenues totaling $20 billion to $25 billion and net income between $1 billion and $2

History of mining accidents in the US over the last 100 years

Here, we list the most tragic mining accidents to have hit the states in the last 100 years. 1907 The worst mining disaster in American history saw 362 miners killed in an explosion at the Monongah coal mine in West Virginia. The explosion, on 6 December, was caused by

Labor Conditions History of Western Civilization II

Child labor, dangerous working conditions, and long hours were just as prevalent before the Industrial Revolution. Mining has always been especially dangerous and at the beginning of the 19th century, methods of coal extraction exposed men, women, and children to very risky conditions. In 1841, about 216,000 people were employed in the mines.

A systems analysis approach was applied by using structural equation modeling (SEM) to examine the interactions between the contributory factors of coal mine accidents.
