To investigate the development trend of occupational health of coal miners and promote the implementation of occupational health protection in coal mines. Based on the knowledge graph analysis method, CiteSpace software was used to conduct the keyword clustering and emergence of coal miners' occupational health literature included in the core databases of China National Knowledge Infrastructure(CNKI) and Web of Science(WoS) in the past 20 years. The results indicated that coal miners' occupational health research topics were divided into occupational health, occupational hazard factors, and career-related diseases. Occupational-related diseases focused on behavioral and physical diseases, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases metabolic diseases, and chronic non-specific respiratory diseases. Compared with occupational diseases, occupational-related diseases had the characteristics of 'multiple causes and one effect', causing much more difficulty in diagnosis. Pneumoconiosis, hearing loss, psychological stress, and hypertension were the main factors threatening coal miners' health. Moreover, such health issues were associated with occupational exposure, and risk analysis and control were important strategies to deal with hazard factors. The emerging research hotspots were the cause and prevention of occupational-related diseases, and the multi-discipline research of occupational health, brain science, and intelligence.
