Abstract: The mining industry is inherently hazardous, with workers facing risks such as cave-ins, falling debris, exposure to harmful gases, and machinery accidents. To mitigate these risks, smart helmets have been developed as a safety solution for the mining industry. Smart helmets are high-tech safety helmets equipped with sensors, cameras, GPS tracking, communication systems, and augmented reality technology. These helmets can detect potential safety hazards in the environment and alert workers to take necessary precautions. A wearable helmet is exhibited in this study, for the risks in the mining area. This prototype provides real-time monitoring of harmful gasses, temperature, humidity, and worker’s heart-rate.

Keywords: Mining, Helmet, Safety, Sensors, Arduino Nano, LCD Display, Alarm, Tracking, Vital sign monitoring.
