Mining Publication: Mine Safety Education and Training Seminar: Proceedings: Bureau of Mines Technology Transfer Seminar
Original creation date: January 1988
Education and training research is a major component of the Bureau of Mines Human Factors Research Program. The goal of human factors research is to enhance human performance for the purpose of improving both safety and the profitability of the minerals industries. This is achieved through the design of mining equipment, work tasks, management procedures, and development of human resources. This proceedings volume presents several new developments that are helping to improve the quality and efficiency of health, safety, and occupational skills training in the mining community. Several papers address the issue of how to teach and assess miner abilities to deal with underground mine emergencies. Other papers examine practical procedures for defining and cost-justifying the integration of structured training and other performance improvement strategies to enhance the proficiency of the work system.
