There is a large number of jobs in Poland, the performance of which involves working in difficult, arduous conditions. Such jobs include probably the work of miners in hard coal mines. They often go to the mine several times a week for many years. They work several hundred meters underground in the dark, high temperature, humidity, dust and noise with loud machines. Such extreme working conditions cause many occupational diseases caused by these conditions and even life threatening. The total number of accidents in the whole mining has decreased at the turn of the last years, however, in the hard coal mining itself, it remains at a similar level. When performing work in such difficult conditions, the miner should know well and, above all, observe the work safety regulations. The appropriate organizational culture enables, among others shaping the level of safety culture and improving working conditions [2, 14, 19, 25, 26]. Therefore, miners should be constantly motivated to work safely, but also rewarded. The results of the literature analysis of the subject were supported by own research in the scope of the subject of comfort of life and work in the assessment of the professional group of energy sector employees on the example of a mining enterprise. The research was carried out among miners, in one of the Polish mines. They were intended to show the magnitude of the problem of discomfort in the work of a professional group of miners in hard coal mining, as well as comfort of life and motivation for a safe working mode.
