Abstract: In order to reduce the lag in labor productivity, competitiveness and other indicators compared to the developed countries of the world, Russia today pays considerable attention to the state support for the development of digital technologies and digitalization of the production processes. Digital technologies are now increasingly penetrating into traditional industries, contributing to a more optimal use of resources and increasing the efficiency of business processes. The article discusses the issues of digitalization of production processes in mining operations. Introduction of advanced digital and information technologies into the work system of mining enterprises ensures the transition to continuous monitoring of their production processes, improves the level of safety in mining operations, promotes more optimal use of resources and increases competitiveness of the companies. All of this makes significant changes in the working methods and management processes of the companies, while creating favourable conditions for introduction of innovations.

Keywords: production processes, industrial safety, digitalization, digital technologies
