Mining Publication: Safety Culture Assessment in Underground Coal Mining
Original creation date: August 2007
This report describes the results of a pilot Safety Culture Assessment implemented at a small Appalachian underground coal mine. The purposes of this pilot assessment were to (a) evaluate the feasibility and usefulness of a methodology for assessing safety culture that had previously been developed for use within other industries, (b) to initiate an investigation into the understanding and defining of the existing safety culture of the underground coal mining industry, and (c) provide meaningful and useful recommendations for the participating mine for their consideration in their ongoing quest to enhance their existing safety culture.
