Recently mechanization and automation advancement is showing a rising trend right from the mining to the safety areas but at the same time, we can not ignore unscientific mining practices in many underground and opencast mines in India. Recently lots of changes are made in mining technologies and operations. Accordingly, safety and legislation views are also altered.

Dissipation of such knowledge to the mining personnel for both underground and opencast mines are absolutely necessary for their awareness and implementation in their respective mines for achieving higher production and productivity and also to achieve “Zero Accident Potentiality”. Under such a background the Department of Mining Engineering of Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur designed this one week short term course on Mining Technology, Operations including Safety and Legislation, which tailored to cover up various emerging thrust areas of mining technology, mining operations, accident prevention, safety and related areas as mentioned in the course structure.
