Training may be regarded as the process of acquiring skills and knowledge for the performance of an activity. It is particularly important to organizations in terms of both resources expended on training and benefits resulting from subsequent performance. The effect of training in the mining industry is especially important because of widespread reliance on appropriate worker behavior to minimize the risks associated with mining processes. The distinguishing feature of the training effort reported in this paper is its focus on assisting small-mine management in dealing with identified training needs for section supervisors and other supervisory personnel in day-to-day operations. Although the mining industry has had to absorb considerable responsibility for the initiation, modification, and continuation of training programs, the structural capabilities for implementing these programs seems to depend in part upon the size of the mining operation.
