Abstract
The Bureau of Mines and other mining researchers have been amassing a growing body of evidence that highly productive mines also tend to be safer mines. This paper describes new research evidence that further supports this relationship and also provides some insight into why safety and productivity are related. In particular, evidence from a sample of 22 high-productivity mines shows how they also achieved better than average safety records. The data show that, not only have these mines found ways to boost production well above average, their lost-time accident rates are significantly lower than those of typical mines from the rest of the industry. These high-productivity mines appeared to develop a working environment that encouraged both productivity and safety. They were characterized as fostering a positive management-labor climate where responsibility for both safety and productivity was felt throughout all levels of the organization.
