Currently, Uzbekistan is in the process of legislation modernization, primarily in matters of labor protection and industrial safety. Modernization consists in the transition from a previously existing ineffective system focused on compensation payments to a modern system based on preventive approaches, which imply continuous improvement of work conditions. The aim of this work is to analyze the legislation in the field of labor protection management, obliging employers to proceed to occupational risks assessment and their management, as well as the assessment of occupational risks for miners, working under the influence of harmful and dangerous production factors during gold mining in the quarry, and the development of measures to reduce them.
The possible reasons for the discrepancy with the stated requirements of the physical factors of the miners working environment when performing work in gold mining quarries are analyzed. It has been established that professional risks for personnel are classified as high and medium and it is necessary to carry out organizational and technical measures to minimize them.
