Underground workers of coal mines are prone to several hazardous conditions during their work. These may lead to serious injuries and at times loss of life. These incidents have direct and indirect effects on employees and employers. Accidents in underground mines can often have disastrous consequences. Risk assessment depends on efficiency of hazard identification and hence an innovative approach is required that focuses on these safety issues and the improvement in productivity and cost reduction in underground mines. This study presents a design that can effectively detect underwater using different sensors. Sensors are used to indicate Gas Side-scan LIDAR detection and Leakage detection which are then indicated with the help of LED, Buzzer, Playback device, Voice recording, and dial-up logic. These indicators suggest the proper functioning of the sensors. This study brings about a unique technique in which telephones will be used to monitor such sensors. The situation of the house can be known using any telephone. Mechanism being that, if any mishappening takes place at home, the sensor attached to the mobile will be switched on automatically and it will initiate the redial button of the telephone. The redialed number will then receive a voice message regarding the event. The IoT(Internet of Things) interface is used to fetch the real time data to the cloud for further analysis. Experimental results have shown to visualize the performance of the system which is dome by using ThingSpeak.
