Disaster, catastrophic, inundation, hazardous, explosive, spontaneous combustion


From the time coal was first mined there have been difficulties. How to support the roof, getting fresh air to the face, mining economically, transporting the coal, seam gases dilution, fires prevention, coal dust problem, explosive outbursts, spontaneous combustion, collapse of overburden etc. Disaster in general is a event or series of event, which gives rise to casualties and damage or loss of life, properties, environment on such a scale which is beyond the normal capacity of the affected community to cope with. Disaster is also sometimes described as a “catastrophic situation in which the normal pattern of life or eco-system has been disrupted and extra –ordinary emergency interventions are required to save and preserve lives and environment”. A mining disaster is defined as “accident with 10 or more fatalities”. However, it may also be defined as “an unexpected, sudden occurrence, including in particular a major emission of gas, fire, explosion or inundation, resulting from abnormal developments in course of mining activity, leading to a serious dangers to workers, public or the environment, whether immediate or delayed, inside or outside the mine or involving one or more hazardous substances”. There may also be an emergency which may not cause loss of life, but may result in trapping of workers, or affecting persons requiring emergency actions as in case of a disaster. These incidents have potentials of a disaster in the mine. With these concepts in the background, the present study has been carried out in context with the Chasnalla Group of Mines, ISP, and SAIL.
