    International safety regulations with strict enforcement and fines for violators which woud go into a fund to support the families who suffer the loss of family breadwinner. In the mean time buy no diamonds or gold.

    @ bevins, the majority of work down in the mines barely qualify for semi skillsd labor, if they were really smart enough to be skilled, and they still go down, then they must feel copelled to do it. Firefighters know their risks, you dont hear them bit.chin. Your a cry baby wiyh no idea what or why theese things come to be. No one put a gun to their heads. Bigger issues to worry about
