This research assessed the extent to which the occupational safety and health act in Kenya safeguards the safety and health of workers in its coal mines. From a comparison with law in other countries, the author identifies gaps and recommends that Kenya should enact more comprehensive clauses for occupational safety and health of coal mine workers, should revise the compensation amounts provided for by the Work Injury Benefits Act; set guidelines and directions encompassing duties of employers and employees in mining and provide for medical services in coal mines.
