In order to prevent occupational accidents, the factors causing the accidents should be analyzed. In this study, 103, 815 occupational accidents in the mining sector, which occurred between 2013 and 2020, which were recorded by the SGK, were quantitatively examined. In the analysis, the effects of parameters such as the event that caused the accident, the cause of the injury, the type of injury, part of body, the activity carried out, age, education level, time of the accident, and occupation on the occurrence of the accident were examined. As a result; It has been found that occupational accidents are mostly in underground mines and coal-lignite extraction, and workers with low education level and working in production have a high tendency to work accident. It has also been determined that injuries from the hands and arms are high in the 25-34 age range, at the 2nd and 3rd hours of the start of work, in the operator and assembly group, during material handling, while working with hand machines.
