THK BIG-rROBhKM ]' M I N E SAt'ETY \yOHK. Inducing tho ln^idtuil m i n e worker to comprehend ' h e necessity for doing hts work aa instructed so as to avoid the dangers incident to his occupation, al1ll remains the- chief drawback to the f u r t h e r elimination of accidents. Despite the persis e-nce of mine ofll- cials in coatiuttingi instruction hi the safe methods of doing things, no matter how' often repeated, some miners will revert to tlu unsafe aud apparently to them tho easy way, when the m i n e foreman r bin-assistant is not present to porsrnally seo that the worker does not take unnecessary risks. Tho inevitable result is t h a t sooner or l a t e r tin worker becomes the victim of his ov u carelessness or disregard of instruct Ions. 1 "Widows and orphans are mad a, t n o accident rating ot 'the mine rises ai corclitigly atirf the public gains tho in.pression that the. elforts to prevent atcideata a\tiil little or nothing. That' th'eso conditions s t i l l prevail oduso safety worker-, almost to despair over-'the slow progiesa they nre a-blo to make in accident prevention. That they arc emphasized at r-very mooting of; mine safety workers, was again proven «t the a n n u a l safety meeting ot the Yough and N irth Bud diviiiious on Saturday evon-Jir . While each ^of the speakers considered the aubjei t of safety from different points 01" view they ul'l agreed that moro t h o r o u g h instruction, more care on part of the miner, moro rigid' discipline of those who wilfully disobey rules and orders, are absolutely necessajy to a bettor accident rating of mines. Of course tlio weightier b u r d e n resits upon mine officials to bring about a better s h o w i n g In t h e reduction of accident:*. They arc tho executive ofllcers who stand between, the company and its employes. They have a heavy responsibility as well as a difficult task. Thej cannot be pre-swit in all sections o£ tlie mine to prevent careless miners tj king risks or iu doing their work in an unsafe way. Very naturally the company management 1'ooks to t h e plant officials to carry out lustriu Uonsi, and in most instances this ttj done with a f u i t h - fulness that Is most commendable. Unhappily, howeve-i, they cannot give assurance t h a t t h e i r own instructions w i l l at all timed lo observed, hence accidents c o n t i n u e to happen. Improvement In the accident rate seems to be possible t h ' o u g h unremitting patience and care iti reiterating the principles and prai UCP of safety, in the hope that the Individual miners will eventually absorb them to the extent that they \ become a habit. That done accidents should be very much reduced in number, .Bringing it about will remain t h e biggest problem in m i n e safely.
