3 1. Mining of minerals has been one of the most common activity since ancient and is continue 2. After the globalization it is difficult to compete in the market unless the competitive cost of production and continuous supply 3. Continuous and quality production needs advance technology, adopting best mining practices and develop matching infrastructure. 4. Contract mining is the effective tool to achieve continuous quality product. 5. Contractors are more concern with cost reduction and hence more vulnerable to safety. 6. Hence National safety Conferences are now more emphases on contractors working NEED OF NATIONAL SAFETY CONFERENCE

4 SOME STATISTICS Total coal mines operated in India: >500 Total Opencast coal mines operated in india:286 Coal demand in India: 696 MT(FY ) Coal produced by India:534 MT (FY ) To fulfill the gap between demand and supply it is necessary to operate the mine with modern technology and adopt better mining practices

5 NEED OF CONTRACT MINING In the modern era it is difficult to survive in the market unless the competitive cost of production and timely supply of quality product is ensured. There are some common reasons for opting contract mining by the owners, these are: 1. Reduce operating cost. 2. Timely supply of quality product to consumers. 3. Smooth and continuous operation. 4. Non availability of sufficient internal resources and 5. Share risks with contractors.

Non availability of sufficient internal resources and 5. Share risks with contractors.

6 CONTRACT MINING AND SAFETY The option of contract mining, though help in cost reduction, it is more vulnerable to safety in mines. Followings are the problem areas for safety, health and welfare: 1. In many cases, the existing mine management structure is not suitable and effective to control the interfaces with contractors. 2. Big contractors awards parts of the job to petty contractors not having adequate capacity or concern for safety. 3. Employees are purely temporary, not conversant with mining laws. 4. Employees are not given required training. 5. Contractors worker have a more risk taking attitude. 6. More working hours/fatigue 7. Lack of medical surveillance and welfare amenities. Having needs of contract mining vis-a vis safety of mines, 10 th conference on safety in mines had given more weight age on contract mining. Recommendation of NSC and status of its implementation is summarized ahead slides: CONTRACT MINING AND SAFETY The option of contract mining, though help in cost reduction, it is more vulnerable to safety in mines.
