I'm taking a break this week for the weekly mining safety topics usually posted every Monday.  I'm busy setting up the new Mining Man website, which is looking great.  It will be much easier to navigate and find what you're looking for.  Our weekly safety topics will be back soon, and I've just received some very interesting data on the causes of mining fatalities in the US last year which points to inexperience as a key factor.  Stay tuned for a discussion on that.

Here's a list of our most popular safety topics over the last few months in case you've missed any.

Brain Protection (Safety Glasses' other important job)

Line of Fire

Using the Right Tools for the Job

Safety around Stairs


Hazard Identification (including some handy downloads)

Have a safe and productive week.
