Safety in our mines
Safety is our first priority
The recently appointed Board and management team has introduced a wide ranging review of safety practices across the whole company with the full involvement of the workforce and trade unions.
We believe that all accidents and occupational illness can be prevented. We plan, design, manage and supervise to ensure we work towards these goals.
We believe that anyone working for, or with, UK Coal should not incur any injury whilst at their place of work.
We investigate accidents, incidents and working practices to determine what happened and take the necessary steps to prevent recurrences.
UK Coal has a comprehensive Health and Safety Management System and all colleagues receive safety training on an annual basis. For more information on UK Coal's safety approach go to the Safety section of this website.
