In the late 18th century a demand arose in England for a miner’s lamp that would not ignite the gas methane (firedamp.

A safety lamp is any of several types of lamp that provides illumination in coal mines and is designed to operate in air that may contain coal dust or gases both of which are potentially flammable or explosive. Until the development of effective electric lamps in the early s miners used flame lamps to provide illumination.

Open flame lamps could ignite flammable gases which collected in mines, causing explosions and so safety lamps. Some did not even have safety lamps. A terrible explosion occurred at the Bellbird Colliery, one of the busiest on the Maitland coalfields, on Saturday last.

The disaster occurred in No. 3 section of the mine, shortly after 2 p.m. The Davy lamp is a safety lamp for use in flammable atmospheres, invented in by Sir Humphry Davy. It consists of a wick lamp with the flame enclosed inside a mesh screen.

It was created for use in coal mines, to reduce the danger of explosions due to the presence of methane and other flammable gases, called firedamp or minedamp.
