There are many kinds of jobs that people have. On one side, you have the average run-of-the-mill desk job where you have to be in an office, handling the tasks that you’re made responsible for, under your job description. On the other hand, though, we have some jobs that require you to put in some physical labour and even put your life on the line. Window cleaners, doctors and miners all have jobs that require them to take risks and be very good at producing favourable outcomes.
The mining industry, in particular, is a highly taxing and dangerous environment to be working in the task is laborious and in the past, there’s been a staggeringly high mortality rate in the mines, as well. Miners would inhale poisonous gasses and very fine particles of dust and succumb to breathing diseases and be involved in mine collapsing accidents. The mortality risk aside, the work miners did over the past centuries has always been very labour intensive. However, modern-day mining businesses are finding ways to rise above these challenges.
Mines around the world are now starting to depend more on machinery to mine resources rather than having laboured with pickaxes do all the digging. Machines are doing the mining a lot faster, with greater accuracy and most of all, they’re making mines safer places to work. Physical labour is still required in mines but these mining industry innovations are making it such that people get the work done through machines, rather than being on the front lines by themselves.
Thanks to newer technologies, miners are also able to locate newer resources to tap into, which is very important since mines run empty eventually yet we need more natural resources.
