Sand and gravel are mined world-wide and account for the largest volume of solid material extracted globally. Formed by erosive processes over thousands of years (John, ), they are now being extracted at a rate far greater than their renewal.

    Offshore sand and gravel extraction began in Belgium in (29,m³). There is a growing interest in sea sand, mainly because the existing sand quarries on land are nearing exhaustion. This sand is used in the construction industry.   Now, with localized shortages and some countries banning sand mining, sand has turned into a global commodity. Pensacola Beach, Beach shows extremely white sand color.

    Study the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) related to hazard recognition and risk perception, specifically whether there are differences in KSAs based on experience with sand, stone, and gravel (SSG) mining. Through work with subject matter experts (SMEs) and analyses of fatal and non-fatal MSHA data, identify hazards found at SSG mine. Sand, gravel and phosphate from the sea. The extraction of mineral resources from the sea is by no means a new activity. Many countries have in fact been extracting sand and gravel for decades. This loose rock is used to make concrete, as backfill on building sites and in harbours, and also as beach nourishment to protect coastlines.
