And then I stumbled across Mining Mayhem, a blog that collects mining incident photos from around the world. (Please be aware that MPi is in no way connected with Mining Mayhem.)

Now, safety is no joke and we appreciate that most mining companies in Australia state that their goal is to have every worker return home safely, every day.

These pictures, though, remind us that people and equipment can get involved in some awkward scrapes. We thought you’d like to check them out.

When you do, spare a thought for the people who were hurt (or worse still) in some of these incidents.
