This paper describes a methodology of investigating and reporting loss incidents. In a cooperative arrangement with two mining companies operating a total of five mines, field evaluation of this method was undertaken for a period of nearly 18 months. The major contributing factors in loss incidents included inadequate job definition and training, unnecessary work environment hazards, inadequate task performance supervision, poor tool or equipment design, inadequate protection equipment, tool or equipment failure, and worker stress. Also outlined are the principles of this methodology, the role of the investigator, and the results of the field trials.
