Evaluation of Safety Assessment Methods for the Mining Industry. Volume I.
Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :123 pages
The objectives of this study were to examine a representative cross section of formal safety analysis techniques developed for the nuclear and aerospace industries, to recommend those methods that would be suitable for application to the mining industry, and to include those methods in a user's manual. Volume I of this two- volume report presents the results of the examination of available safety assessment methods. The major safety concerns and needs of mine operators were identified through telephone contacts and a visit to a minesite. Safety assessment methods recommended for use by the mining industry were also investigated for potential adaptability to a user-interactive computer system. Several methods were determined to be immediately transferrable to the mining industry and are described in Volume II.
