Coal mines are prone to hazards and mining companies are increasingly focusing on technologies to prevent accidents and improve the safety of miners. Government regulations, and health and safety standards developed by international mining groups also promote efficient safety practices. Some of the reasons for the occurrence of accidents in mining include ineffective drilling, blasting, loading and hauling, leaking out of poisonous methane gas, coal dust, and machinery collisions.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the coal, lignite, and anthracite mining market in 2016, accounting for around 70% of the market. This was mainly due to large population and manufacturing activities in the region, thereby having high coal demand for power generation, and steel and cement production. According to World Coal Association, China, India and Japan burn around 71% of the world's fresh coal mined. Western Europe was the second largest region accounting for around 9% of the market. Middle East was the smallest region accounting for less than 1% of the market. This can be attributed to the limited population and the availability of other energy sources such as oil.
