Recently the terms of occupational risk assessment in coal industry have become more actual and demanded due to continuous increase of control over occupational safety, as well as the occupational experience influence on this risk.In past few years the system of workers’ trainings and monitoring was intensified, furthermore the complexity of usable equipment and mining machines in mining enterprises grew up. Such a progress in mining engineering caused a need in prominent growth of workers’ knowledge and skills. At the same time workers’ training outside the workplace can’t provide flexible enough and quick training on new methods of work with up-to-date high-performance mining machines, equipment and mechanism. Occupational methods to perform assigned tasks, as well as the usage of the newest mining equipment require a long time, that is why to speed up the process there is a need in continuous on the job training. The research, based on wide statistics by AO “SUEK-Kuzbass” enterprises in years 2009-2103 and 2015-2019, indicated that for the period, when traumatism level, and occupational risk level accordingly, decrease was analyzed, the workers, who took part in continuous on the job training, exceeded the minimum traumatism level a few years earlier. It should be mentioned, that such an effect can be watched at workers, who have long occupational experience. Thereby the efficiency of continuous on the job training system within the enterprises of coal mining industry can be confidently confirmed.
