Abstract
Researchers have come up with a lengthy list of factors associated with miners, mine management, and company policy that appear to have an impact on coal-mine safety. This article calls attention to a relatively small set of factors that have been found to be important in accounting for these various differences in mine safety. Four factors emerged as being consistent predictors of underground coal mine safety performance: (1) the extent to which underground employees perceive that upper management is concerned about their welfare, (2) the extent to which management actively involves the work force in identifying safety problems and defining solutions, (3) the favorability of management-labor relations, and (4) the rate of employee absenteeism.
