Improvement of the monitoring system and the assessment of a long-term population exposure to pollutant substances in the environment using neural networks (MESTD - 43014)


Mining is a branch of industry with a high number of occupational injuries, including light, heavy and fatal injuries. In this study, we examined whether socio-demographic characteristics of employees have impact on the type of occupational injuries. The survey was conducted on a sample of 108 employees at the mine "Lece", who differed in terms of their age, the overall length of service, work experience in the mine, the level of education and the position. The results demonstrated that the group of factors such as the age, the overall length of service, and work experience in the mine, showed significant differences when it comes to occupational to injuries, unlike the factors such as education level and the position (workplace).
