The construction plan of the "Six Systems" for coal mine security, namely mine monitoring and control, personnel location, emergency hedge, wind pressure self-rescue, water rescue, and communications and liaison, has been determined, according to the State Administration of Work Safety (SAWS).

According to the plan, all China's coal mines are required to complete the construction and improvement of the systems by the end of 2010, including mine monitoring and control, wind pressure self-rescue, water rescue and communications and liaison. All coal mines belonging to central state-owned enterprises and key state-owned coal enterprises are required to complete the construction and improvement of the underground personnel positioning system.

In addition, all coal and gas outburst mines, including mines with dense gas and mines with flammable coal beds, are required to complete the construction and improvement of the emergency hedge system by the end of June 2012, and all the other coal mines are required to complete the construction and improvement of the emergency hedge system by the end of June 2013.
