What is it about?

Exploitation of coal from the Jiu Valley presents its own specific, in terms of coal mining deposit conditions, fact that required a continuous preoccupation for the monitoring of the work conditions, in order to ensure work-places safety.

Why is it important?

This paper intends to indicate a method of increasing the work environment safety using GIS technology, the analysis being completed at Lupeni Coal Mine, the largest Coal Mine in Jiu Valley, characterised by a low level of accidents that has taken place in there so far.

Perspectives

University of Petrosani

Writing this article we wanted to show that a continuous preoccupation for the monitoring of the work conditions, in order to ensure work-places safety, it is a necessity to consolidate the sustainability of the mining activity.
