Abstract
In the 10-year period 1983 to 1992 a total of 169 occupational accidents occurred in the Barentsburg (Russia) colliery. The corresponding figures for the Longyearbyen (Norway) mines are 524. Of these, fatal accidents were 8 in Barentsburg and 5 in Longyearbyen. The curve representing the number of casualties in Longyearbyen showed a marked decline from 1985 onwards, whereas the Barentsburg figures, although much lower at the outset, increased during the last 4 years.
