Coal mining industry yet remains one of the most hazardous branches associated with lethal injuries. The problems of industrial safety control, as well as conception of trends and methods in coal production safety enhancement are disclosed. The human factor takes an essential part in accident rate in coal mining, especially in underground method. The lethal injuries take place most frequently when regulatory requirements of industrial safety are disobeyed, technologies in use are obsolete and job miner work management is deficient. It is emphasized that in 2016 through 2018, considerable reduction in the rates of accidents and injuries has been achieved as a result of earlier undertaken governmental measures on implementation of restructuring stage III in the coal industry. It is suggested to introduce dedicated software as an element of operating control in mines to disable work order delivery per shifts to avoid accidents. Universal application of the multi-functional control system will improve mining safety, as well as will enable administration and management of technological and productive processes both in routine and in emergency. Modern equipment will ensure maximum safety and efficiency of coal mining. Skilled personnel training in the coal industry can be implemented as a continuous and close cooperation between business and education. Improvement of produced coal quality is impossible without a state-of-the-art and innovative system of highly qualified personnel training. Creation of the research-and-production clusters will provide the industry with experienced professionals, as well as with advanced and efficient system for upgrading skills and continuing education of personnel in the mining and metallurgical industries.
