3M Mining and Metallurgy Solutions in Coal Mines

Coal is a combustible, sedimentary, organic rock, which is composed mainly of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Australia is the world's largest exporter of coal and fourth largest producer of coal behind China, USA and India. The coal industry takes the issue of safety very seriously; there are risks associated with all forms of coal mining, not least because of the heavy machinery used in coal excavation. Modern coal mines have rigorous safety procedures, health and safety standards and worker education and training, which have led to significant improvements in safety levels.

3M Mining and Metallurgy Solutions is a global leader in mining worker safety. Working with coal mining companies, 3M Mining and Metallurgy Solutions helps keep miners safe, with protective equipment, communications systems and visibility solutions.
