This week on Utah NOW--as people in Central Utah cling to the hope that six trapped miners are still alive, we're talking about the safety in a coal mine.
It's an evolving story about standards, working conditions and the culture of an industry where there have always been risks.
Studio guests include Robert Gehrke from the Salt Lake Tribune, Kent Powell, State Historian for the Utah State Historical Society and Gilbert Madrid, a former mine worker.
