    13 May 2006

    This new code, which reflects the many changes in the industry, its workforce, the roles of the competent authorities, employers, workers and their organizations, and on the development of new ILO instruments on occupational safety and health, focuses on the production of coal from underground mines. The original code of practice on safety and health in coalmines was adopted by the Governing Body in 1986. Surface mining is covered by the code of practice, Safety and health in opencast mines (1991). This code of practice is based on principles established in international instruments relevant to the protection of workers' safety and health.
