MineHealth - Sustainability of miners´well-geing, health and work ability in the Barents Region

Lead Partner: Umeå University Department of Public Health & Clinical, Sweden

The project will provide long term sustainability of well-being, health and work ability among workers in the mining industry on the Barents region.

Work in the mining industry situated in the Barents region is characterized by exposure to harsh climatic conditions. Therefore specific knowledge is needed about the separate and combined risks that are unique for the regional mining industry. The project will increase this knowledge. It will also work on various measures of protection against the harmful conditions of the work on arctic mines.
