ANNEX Terms of reference of the Mines Safety and Health Commission

1. The Safety and Health Commission shall follow developments in safety and in the prevention of occupational risks to health in coal mines, including the development of rules made to those ends by the public authorities, and shall assemble all necessary information on the progress made and the pratical results obtained in these fields.

In order to obtain the necessary information, the Safety and Health Commission shall apply to the Governments concerned.

The Safety and Health Commission shall make use of the information in its possession and shall submit proposals to the Governments for the improvement of safety and health in coal mines.

2. The Safety and Health Commission shall assist the High Authority in seeking a method of compiling comparable statistics in respect of accidents and injury to health caused by working in coal mines.

3. The Safety and Health Commission shall ensure that the appropriate information assembled by it is swiftly communicated to the quarters concerned (in particular the competent authorities and employers "and workers" organisations).

4. The Safety and Health Commission shall, by regular contact with the Governments, keep itself informed of the steps taken to follow up proposals made by the Conference on Safety in Coal Mines, and also those drawn up by itself.

5. The Safety and Health Commission shall propose such studies and research as seem to it to be the most appropriate for the improvement of safety and health in coal mines, and shall specify how they may best be put into effect.

6. The Safety and Health Commission shall facilitate the exchange of information and of experience between persons responsible for safety and the maintenance of healthy working conditions, and shall propose measures appropriate to that end (e.g. organisation of study visits, setting up of documentation services).

7. The Safety and Health Commission shall propose suitable measures for establishing the necessary liaison between the rescue services of Community countries.

8. The Safety and Health Commission shall submit an annual report to the Governments meeting within the Council, and to the High Authority, on its activities and on developments in the fields of safety and health in the coal mines of the various Member States. At such time it shall in particular study the statistics compiled in those fields.
