The effectiveness of mining operations is often characterized in terms of safety and productivity. Statistical evidence for a positive relationship between safety and productivity indicates that both may be related to common underlying factors. Several recent empirical research studies suggest that management and behavioral factors have an important influence on safety and productivity at mining operations in the United States. This U.S. Bureau of Mines paper presents an overview of this evidence and proposes a conceptual model to explain how management and behavioral variables affect mine safety and productivity. The implications for improving mine safety and productivity through changes in management practices are discussed.
