Safety analysis system study.
For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries 1972 Jan; :1-122
The purpose of this study was to develop a plan for the organization and operation of a Bureau of Mines safety analysis center. Before the completion of the study, the Bureau established such a center, the health and safety analysis center (hsac), under the direction of the assistant director of health and safety for technical support. This report recommends that this center be organized under four branches: accident information, special studies, systems evaluation, and programs assurance. For hsac to fulfill its role, it must provide current, relevant outputs in each of its four output categories, as follows: (1) as rapidly as possible, establish its role within the Bureau and obtain recognition of that role at all management levels, (2) streamline its data collection and publication processes, and (3) maintain continuous contact with users of hsac outputs to insure the relevancy of those outputs.
