Abstract
A new methodology is presented for using uniquely structured mine injury data analyses to determine prioritized workplace intervention strategies. The methodology was applied using 1993 West Virginia mine accident data, resulting in the targeting of specific counties, mine sizes, and job titles for greatest-impact interventions. Besides nested analyses for focusing attention, microanalyses of high-injury job titles were used to break the accident experience down into miners' work cycles and frame the situations and conditions under which the accidents occurred. The results from microanalyses were then used in focused-discussion groups during interventions at mines.
