Abstract


Both China and the United States are large countries in coal production and consumption, however, the safety conditions of coal mining production in China are much worse than that of the U.S.. Although the Chinese Administration of Coal Mine Safety improved safety measures to tighten control on coal mining industry, the number of accidents, death toll and fatality rate per million tons were much higher than those of the U.S. in recent years. Based on the statistical analysis of Sino-U.S. coal mining accidents, the paper first came up with the caution from the comparison of Sino-U.S. coal mining industry accidents, then analyzed the reasons for China’s coal mining industry being accident-prone, and then pointed out that the Chinese government should learn from the management experience of American coal mining industry. At last, it brought forward some conclusions and prospects for the development of China’s coal mining industry.
