Mining Project: An Analysis of Health and Safety Management Systems in Mining

Project DetailValue
Principal Investigators
  • Dana Reinke Willmer, NIOSH/OMSHR, 412-386-5348
Start Date7/1/2011
Purpose

As mining companies build or refine their current HSMS programs, examples of the current state of the U.S. industry’s efforts as well as comparison to research on leading indicators of occupational safety and health performance can serve to assist the industry in measuring its’ current approach against more mature HSMS programs.

Program Areas
Keywordseffectiveness research, mining, safety climate

Research Summary

Jonathan Bennett et al. found six indicators and their accompanying attributes could be used to assess the current state of a company’s practices and/or as part of a regular system review of a formal HSMS (2005). The currently proposed research will apply Bennett’s model of leading OSH indicators in an analysis of health and safety management practices of a sample of U.S. mining organizations.Using this model also has the potential to identify industry-specific approaches that are critical to HSMS development and implementation in mining.
