Abstract
Emergency training for underground coal miners can be developed using inoculation theory, which has been used to explain how people may resist unwanted persuasion attempts by preparing counterarguments in advance. This theory is relevant in an emergency training context when used to help people react quickly and effectively to emergencies by preparing their responses in advance. The researchers used a NIOSH training module as an example of how the theory may be applied in a training context to prepare workers psychologically for emergencies in underground coal mines, but the concepts can be applied in other industries that require emergency safety training.
