Resumen The object of the book is to contribute to a better understanding of state regulation and inspection in relation to health and safety in British mines. The evolution of health and safety legislation is traced from its beginnings right up to the discussions preceding the latest regulations on the statute book. The influence of reports on coal mine accidents and employment of children, and developments in the regulation and inspection of mines in the 19th century are shown. Other chapters are devoted to the laws on safety and health in coal mines, the influence of technical progress, and the organisation and role of the Mines Inspectorate. The development of the concern of occupational medicine with diseases of miners is traced, and administrative aspects and safety and health organisation in British coalmining is described. In a final chapter, the author deals with the inquiry and the recommendations of the Robens Committee that resulted in the Safety and Health at Work Act 1974. The most important regulations are reproduced in an appendix.
