Mines are extremely dangerous places to work in. They are filled with unexpected dangers and an unstable structure which can easily disintegrate if proper precautions are not taken. The first step towards creating a safer mining experience is to train workers in the special conditions that exist within the mine and the safety precautions, which need to be taken. Such training programs need to be made mandatory for any worker who has to venture inside a mine. It would also be useful to put a plan in place for the workers who have to go inside a mine. The plan should stipulate a certain number of hours that need to be spent in training before being allowed inside mines.
