Miners work in a coal mine in the Black Sea city of Zonguldak, northern Turkey, December 5, 2013. Turkish mining experts said the country's rules and guidelines are not as extensive as some other countries. Turkey does not even have a specific set of safety regulations for the coal industry, said Dr. H. Sebnem Duzgun, a professor with the mining engineering department of Middle East Technical University in Ankara. Yet, with safety regulators across the world increasingly adopting an approach that puts more emphasis on identifying and managing risks, rather than simply having managers blindly following rules, some experts think the greatest weakness in Turkey's regulatory framework is an inspection regime that does not press companies to adopt high standards.
