Abstract
U.S. Bureau of Mines research has indicated that slip and fall accidents are a major cause of injuries during the maintenance of surface mining equipment. All such injuries during 1985, 1986, and the first half of 1987 were studied for information as to accident causes, particularly whether the nature of the causes was worker behavior or machine design. Accidents judged to be solely caused by behavior of the injured individual constituted only 11 pct of a total of 1,384 accidents. An interaction of machine design and behavior was found to be involved in 31 pct of the accidents. The information presented in this study as to antecedent events to slip and fall accidents may be useful in designing intervention strategies to decrease slip and fall injuries.
