1937 year - Honoured worker of science and technology of Russian Soviet Federative Socialistic Republic (RSFSR), laureate of the state prize, Professor, Doctor of Engineering Science V.B. Komarov established the Department of Mine Ventilation and began training of specialists in the field of ventilation and Labour safety.

1945 year – The integrated Department of Mine Ventilation and Occupational Safety was organized, which since 1965 became the Department of Mine Ventilation and Safety.

1967 - 1975 years – The Department was headed by the Rector of the Institute, honoured worker of science and technology of the RSFSR, Professor, Doctor of Engineering Science P.I. Mustel.

1976 - 1996 years – The Department was headed by honoured worker of science of the Russian Federation, academician of the International Academy of Ecology & Life Safety Sciences, Professor, Doctor of Engineering Science  I.I. Medvedev.

1996 - 2009 years – Honoured worker of science of the Russian Federation, academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, the Academy of Mining Science, the International Academy of Ecology & Life Safety Sciences, Professor, Doctor of Engineering Science Y.V. Shuvalov headed the integrated Department of Ecology, Aerology and Labour Safety, which was transformed into the Department of Industrial Safety and Destruction of Rocks in 2004.

2011 year – As a result of the Department division the Department of the industrial safety was formed (Head of Department - prof. G.I. Korshunov), that was joined with the Department of Medical-Engineering Systems and Occupational Safety of the North-West State Correspondence Technological University (NWTU).

Now there are 29 members in the Department: 

  • 8 Professors, among them:

Honoured worker of higher school of the Russian Federation, honoured worker of Comi Republic’s national economy G.I. Korshunov;

Academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, academician of the International Academy of Ecology & Life Safety Sciences, member of the Russian Tunnel Association, member of the International bureau of mining thermophysics S.G. Gendler;

President of the International Academy of Ecology & Life Safety Sciences, honoured ecologist of the Russian Federation, corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, corresponding member of the Academy of Mining Science, laureate of the state prize of the Government of the Russian Federation in science and technology V.A. Rogalev;

Academician of the International Academy of Ecology & Life Safety Sciences, honoured veteran of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences A.F Galkin;

Academician of the International Academy of Ecology & Life Safety Sciences L.P. Victorova.

For years of existence the Department has trained:

  • 50 Doctors of Science (Full Professors);
  • 200 Candidates of Science (PhDs).

The Department trains:

  • bachelors in the direction 280700 «Technospheric safety» (profile «Safety of technological processes and works»);
  • specialists in the direction 130400 «Mining» (profiles: 1. Process safety and mine-rescue work. 2. Safety of technological processes and works);
  • bachelors in the direction 201000 «Biotechnological systems and technologies» (profiles: 1. Engineering  in biomedical practice. 2. Biotechnological and medical devices and systems);
  • students of mining, geological, oil, metallurgical and economical specialties in such disciplines as occupational safety, ventilation, thermophysics and  mine-rescue work.

The Department trains PhD students in the following specialties:

  • 25.00.20 – Geomechanics, destruction of rocks, mining aerodynamics and mining thermophysics
  • 05.26.01 – Labour safety (in mining industry).

At present the graduates from the Department have successful careers and work effectively at such companies as: JSC SUEK, JSC SDS-Ugol, JSC Gazprom, JSC Alrosa, JSC Vorkutaugol, JSC Metrostroy, JSC STIS; JSC Apatit; JSC Kinef, JSC Polymetal, JSC Modern Intelligent Systems, research institute Mekhanobr, etc.

The Department carries out research on:

  • Labour safety of mine workers in the conditions of aggressive natural and man-made environment.
  • Investigation of physical processes in technical systems of mines-and-carriers development of the North.
  • Ventilation of mines, mining camps and underground structures, Aerology of underground structures, Thermodynamics, work safety control, Life Safety
  • Investigation of ventilation of mines and underground structures
  • Creation of screening and health status monitoring of workers of dangerous professions.

The Department has four special laboratories: «Aerology of mining enterprises», «Mine rescue work», «Security systems» and «Life Safety», that has instrumented by training simulators and facilities for laboratorial and research  works. Laboratory «Security systems» has a training complex to manage security for miners on electronic components of the system GRANCH SBGPS, that is used for laboratory works with students to develop practical skills in the management of all life-support systems at a modern mine, and conduct search and rescue operations. Besides, in the laboratory «Security systems» there is an integrated computer lab with 10 seats with installed learning software products.
