Abstract
High absenteeism at coal mines can seriously affect safety and hamper productivity. Several effective strategies for achieving high attendance which mine operators may not have considered are presented, and a method is proposed for implementing programs for minimizing absenteeism among coal miners. The best strategies for improving attendance will vary according to the needs and circumstances of the particular mine; however, the process for establishing such a program is relatively invariant. A four-stage process is recommended: evaluate data from prior attendance records, communicate attendance goals and policy, develop and implement an attendance promotion program, and recycle.
